The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is performed at The Royal Opera House by the ZooNation dance company.
It’s a story told through song and dance, based around characters from Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland.
The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is set in a correctional facility where a newly qualified psychotherapist is given a group which consists of familiar faces from the world of Wonderland.
Each actor performed with confidence and played their characters perfectly.
Highlights included watching the psychotherapist, who was meant to be helping the inmates, slowly unravel questioning just what sanity means.
Other highlights included watching The Cheshire Cat (who has a split personality) appear midway in a powerful schizophrenic dance involving the whole cast. Also, seeing Tweedledum and Tweedledee engaging in a dance battle also brought lots of laughs.
