Welcome to WonderLand, a premier psychiatric hospital. Dr. Knight has the difficult task of treating a man who refers to himself as a “White Rabbit” who suffers from a severe anxiety disorder, a young woman named Alice with body dysmorphia, and a Queen figure suffering from narcissistic rage.
But as the doctor digs deeply into the causes and roots of their disorders he begins to ask: what does “normal” really mean?
Collide tells this story using its signature blend of high-energy dance styles set to a modern pop-rock soundtrack.
The dance theater experience, created to suit safety requirements of COVID-19, will take the audience on a 70-minute ride into a compelling story of friendship and acceptance.
