Maria Theuma reviews Alice in Wonderless Land
”Teatru Malta’s project is a much needed pedagogical interlude to our educational system, and an exciting corrective to the virtual absence of an important discussion around the themes of sex and sexuality among the younger demographic of Maltese society.”
”Rame’s play presents Alice as an allegorical cipher, exactly as Carroll might have seen her, but also in contemporary times as a brand of ‘girl’. It draws into focus not only the contours and force of Carroll’s tale but also harnesses the authority of the original text to expose the ways in which the girl presents herself as a cultural and ideological problem — her body a paradoxical locus of sex and its absence; a fecundity to be feared, shamed, and disciplined.”
This DIY performance is now open to the general public for a limited time only this weekend on Saturday and Sunday in both English and Maltese.
