Acclaimed hip hop dance theatre company, ZooNation, present a gleefully off-the-wall take on the madcap characters of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland.

Young psychotherapist Ernest’s patients all claim to come from a place called Wonderland. He disrupts their never-ending tea party to insist on a ‘T for Therapy’ party – but slowly and surely Ernest becomes more and more like his patients…

Following their sell-out run at the Royal Opera House in 2014, ZooNation reimagine this dance adventure for the unique space of the Roundhouse, using their exuberant and accessible style to explore our perceptions of mental illness.

Suitable for all ages, The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is the perfect family treat or alternative night out.
