Green-Wood Historic Fund and MAPP International Productions present DARK WONDERLAND
Jun 4, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
For four weeks in June 2015, the Green-Wood Historic Fund and MAPP International Productions will present DARK WONDERLAND, a nighttime festival of visionary music, dance and theater marking the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night in June will feature performances by a different trio of acclaimed creators. With Green-Wood’s historic rolling hills as a backdrop, these twelve performing artists will hold a modern-day looking-glass to our city through spectacular presentations in music, dance, and theater.
Theatre goers will be greeted at Green-Wood’s grand gothic archway to begin the evening’s adventure. Guides, carrying lanterns, will lead small groups along winding pathways as they explore Green-Wood’s magnificent landscape that offers spectacular views of Manhattan’s skyline. At twilight, special “Drink Me” refreshments will be served. Each evening will culminate in the presentation of three cutting-edge performances, each by an artist interpreting Wonderland in a modern context.
Tickets for Green-Wood Historic Fund and Brooklyn Historical Society members cost $20; general admission is $25. Tickets go on sale to the public on May 1, 2015. Space is limited and reservations are strongly urged.
