Good Idea #3: Aerial Alice in Wonderland

While Alice is already a far out, fantasy-entertaining young woman, and Wonderland an enchanted, mind-bending place, it can only be made better with aerial dance. Done on lower hanging equipment than say, circus trapeze, aerial dance is about movement, creating the space where there is no trapeze and dancer, only the dance. Trapeze, silks, hoops--the possibilities! The Chestire cat, on a trapeze! Alice, falling down the rabbit hole, falling in a silk. The Queen! Bounding, flying across the stage on a huge double point trapeze. I would love to see Wonderland adapted into a swinging, circling, hanging, wrapped, tangled dancing world.
