Cross Border Project

Alicias buscan Maravillas is a completely free and independent Spanish adaptation of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. What’s more, this documentary form of theatre is also a site-specific show. Entirely bonkers, don’t you think? When writing this project, the director and writer Lucía Miranda interviewed a never-ending list of wonderful people. Some of these interviews were one to one, while some were held in groups and others in the form of workshops. She visited ten of Madrid’s parks and finally settled on one.


In Alicias buscan Maravillas the protagonist is YOU… Yes, YOU. Wonderland is in danger and in order to save it, Alice needs to do six impossible things before breakfast. The first of which is for YOU to answer her call and accompany her on this eclectic journey for children aged 8 to 88, stumbling upon mentally ill hats, the inseparable pair that is a blind women and her dog and teenagers who tell us what to do…


An adventure through the Quinta de los Molinos Park, in collaboration with ESPACIO ABIERTO Quinta de los Molinos, in which the extraordinary beings you meet will share with you part of their life, and through games and tests, together you will save Wonderland.
