Description

Struggling with anxiety and depression in everyday life, Alice enters a topsy-turvy world Through the Looking-Glass. Encountering characters who seem to be comical versions of her friends, Alice's adventures whirl through frightening, funny, fast and furious. Finding comfort, resilience and courage in friendship and humour, and discovering the power of her own creativity, Alice moves forward into her future. A new adventure told through dance-theatre, puppetry and projection by this groundbreaking youth company (known for inventive, thought-provoking and emotive work) and led by an award-winning choreographer. 'What this company is producing is exceptional' (BroadwayBaby.com).

Didn't know what to expect but this was wonderful and emotional original story-telling, in the medium of dance, by a talented troupe from Derbyshire. Bravo!

A moving and inspiring performance. We get the feeling that every one of the young performers had been on the journey that they took us on - from despair through to joy and playfulness. Wonderful!

Came to this show by accident and don't regret it. This a creatively directed and well rehearsed piece. While it felt like a slow start, at its peak this performance was enlightening, energetic and demonstrated the full talents of these young performers.

Expressed so well what many young people feel today, how through friendship and trust these are over come. A wonderful proformance, so well expressed by a group of young talent, the choreography, and dance were excellent.

Powerful story beautifully expressed through dance, movement and music. Energetic, moving and creative exploration of adolescence, identity and facing inner demons. All ages will enjoy this sensitive production.

Amazing performance by a group of young people about coping with growing up and the difficulties that often come with it . The group gave a mesmerising performance with great passion and intensity. Well worth spending 45min in this great venue watching a group from Derbyshire.

Absolutely loved this show! I found myself in tears many times while watching the performance, which was professionally done by a group of young dancers. Thank you for a wonderful start of the Fringe (for me). X

The Fountain (4/5 stars) 86 days ago

An ambitious work from a young cast, using dance, puppetry, and various technical effects, A Letter to Alice tackles important themes. In the topsy-turvy mindscape of Alice Through the Looking Glass, alongside the artwork of Martin Hyde, issues of anxiety and depression are explored, while a voiceover from the future assures Alice (and all young people) that they can overcome their demons.
