Alice, an adventure of wonder and wondering




Keshet Dance opens its latest creation, Alice, an adventure of wonder and wondering with a cast of 135 professional and community dancers aged 8 – 80, conceived and choreographed by Keshet’s Founder and Artistic Director, Shira Greenberg.

In 2016, Keshet produced the 20th Annual and final run of Shira Greenberg’s Nutcracker on the Rocks, an iconic rock n’ roll re-telling of the Nutcracker story. Like Nutcracker on the Rocks, Keshet’s new production combines dancers of all ages and abilities.  “We are excited about this new adventure with our community, exploring our own ‘wonder and wondering’ through the eyes of Alice,” Greenberg said.

“Keshet’s Alice draws inspiration from the Alice in Wonderland story and characters, but our interpretation is only loosely based on Lewis Carroll’s work, and instead we experience Alice through a Keshet lens of self-discovery and new possibilities, embodying and embracing Keshet’s mission of unlimited possibilities.”

Take a journey with Alice to discover “Anything is possible…anything can be” It’s a show for all ages. With classic rock and jazz influencing, a magical dance performance that will leave you in wonder.
