Alice in wonderland oct 18-20

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

Choreographed by Brian Enos

SYNOPSIS

Go down the rabbit hole with the dizzyingly beautiful Alice in Wonderland!  This captivating production stems from the collaboration between choreographer Brian Enos and visual artist Luis Grané.  Enos and Grané bring to life the classic Lewis Carroll story of a girl swept away by her imagination to a place of exquisite beauty and absurdity, where anything is possible and the probable is turned upside down.

Alice in Wonderland combines Grané’s surrealist projection, costume, and set design with Enos’ hybrid of classical and contemporary movement to transport the audience on a journey through the fantastical!

Brian Enos, Choreographer

Originally from San Francisco, CA, Brian Enos is the artistic director of The Big Muddy Dance Company in St. Louis, MO, and has been choreographing since age 14. At the age of 18, while still a student in the Houston Ballet Academy, Enos was invited by artistic director Ben Stevenson, O.B.E. to create his first work for Houston Ballet. He has since gone on to create works for companies such as Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Ballet Met, Nashville Ballet, Oklahoma City Ballet, and DanceWorks Chicago, among others.

Enos was named “Best up and coming choreographer” by the Houston Press and was also a winner of the annual Hubbard Street 2 International Choreographic Competition.

As a dancer, he spent several years performing with Houston Ballet before embarking on an eight year career as a dancer and choreographer with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.
