Through the looking glass / Enchanted words” is a version of the work Alice through the looking glass by Lewis Carroll, with a text written by Manu López Gaseni and adapted by Juan Kruz Igerabide, 2018 National Prize for Children’s and Young Adult Literature.

In the work, a scenic and musical world is built. In addition, Santiago Ortega, a plastic artist, creates live paintings that turn into dolls.

Above the stage, a mirror. Alicia and her cat cross the threshold and find themselves in a world that works under another logic, which is that of dreams. Incredible things will happen to Alice, the world will turn into a big chessboard. The red queen and the blue queen, the knights, Humpty Dumpty, the giant egg, the loving fawn, sputtering flowers and even a unicorn that travels by train will move through it. The figures will lead you to the end of the game, in which Alice will become a queen, and will hold a mad banquet, before returning to the tranquility of her home.
