PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED.

This is very interesting theatre from a very young company.

They explore Lewis Carroll's life, as well as Alice in real life and in Wonderland,
with drama, music, dance, gymnastics, and
the use of several 'stages' spread around the MATCH Middle School.

It is a five minute walk from Forest Hills on the Orange Line. 
You could also throw in a stroll through the Arnold Arboretum, or
a look at the Public Sculpture in the Forest Hill's Cemetery.

Only fifty minutes of work, but i had thought two hours, before I checked the time.

I don't remember anything objectionable for children,
though some of the philosophical musing might go over their heads.

enjoy, REALLY enjoy -len

This project is funded in part by a grant from the Somerville Arts Council,
a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and by the
Friends of the Somerville Library.

     Iris Theatre, an emerging physical theatre collective based in
Somerville, Massachusetts, aims to create and perform original physical
theatre works.  Highly ensemble-based, and often site-specific, Iris Theatre
also aspires to engage the community through performance, outreach, and
dialogue.  Founded in 2009 in an unofficial capacity at Brandeis University
in Waltham, Massachusetts, Iris Theatre incorporates physical theatre
training, contemporary dance, and the collective imagination into their
theatrical process.  Drawing from physical theatre methodologies of Polish
theatre practitioner Jersey Grotowski and American physical theatre company
Double Edge Theatre, Iris Theatre invites the actor to explore and to expand
physical, emotional, and spiritual limitations.  Combining the internal with
external, Iris Theatre develops the inner collective imagination through
outward physical theatre training and improvisation.
