Join the Dark Wonderland in Brooklyn
By Stephanie Oh, Markets Media Life Correspondent
Become part of the Alice in Wonderland fable at the Green-Wood Cemetery this month. Dark Wonderland is a four-week showcase curated by MAPP International Productions, a nonprofit production of performing arts projects that will take the visitors of the Green-Wood Cemetery back to their childhood. The venue presents breathtaking dance, music, and theatrical performances every Thursday and Friday from 7:30pm till 10pm in June.
Ever since it was founded in 1838, Green-Wood Cemetery has been a surreal yet deeply layered space where both the dead and the alive come together. To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, Green-Wood Cemetery partnered up with MAPP International Productions “to hold a modern-day looking glass to our city and the world beyond, through spectacular presentations in theater, dance, and music,” says Brian Tate, the Executive Director of MAPP.
Visitors will begin their candle-lit tour through the cemetery after dark while enjoying dreamlike performances by some of the most captivating artists like SLV, Samita Sinha, Alicia Hall Moran, and Mat Fraser. (For the full schedule, please visit Dark Wonderland.) Dark Wonderland has already started one week ago, but don’t worry: there are three more weeks left of this dreamlike experience. Buy the tickets now to escape the tedious summer routine and become Alice in the surreal yet enchanting Dark Wonderland.
Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
Every Thursday, Friday June 11-June 27
