Olivier Award-nominee Alice’s Adventures Underground returns to London
The Olivier nominated production returns to London.
Described as as one of 2015’s 'events of the summer', the production was nominated for an Olivier Award in the Best Entertainment & Family category at this year's ceremony. Also returning is the children’s show, Adventures in Wonderland, for those aged 5 to 11.
Created by Les Enfants Terribles and producer Emma Brünjes they were originally conceived as a celebration of the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel. Staged in the atmospheric tunnels underneath Waterloo station, the immersive show places audiences at the centre of the adventure and invites guests down the rabbit hole in groups the same size as a pack of playing cards. Each audience member is then given a choice of EAT ME or DRINK ME which affects the way their experience of the show will unfold. Storytelling, live music, puppetry, circus and spectacle all come together to create a fully-formed Wonderland.
Producer Emma Brünjes said of the news: “In 2015 we welcomed over 100,000 visitors to our hugely successful underground wonderland, proving that challenging traditional perceptions of theatre pays off...We couldn’t be more excited about bringing these two shows back next year for those who missed out first time around, and for those who want to return for a second dose of madness.”
The Vaults opened as an arts venue in 2013 and are housed in the tunnels under Waterloo Station, featuring 11 spaces and 17,000 sq feet. Their mission as an arts platform is to collaborate and conspire, embracing artists from all walks of life to come together and inspire others.
