Continuing the festival’s association with the V&A, we welcome Kate Bailey, Senior Curator of Design and Scenography in the Theatre and Performance Department. Kate has recently published Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser to accompany the V&A’s acclaimed exhibition of the same name.

Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is a cultural phenomenon. First published in 1865, it has never been out of print and has been translated into 170 languages. But why does it have such enduring and universal appeal for both adults and children? With a spectacular new visualisation by acclaimed illustrator Kristjana J Williams, Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser goes on to explore how Lewis Carroll’s celebrated Alice books have fuelled creative minds for over 150 Years - a journey whose scope ranges from art, literature, theatre and film through science and technology to fashion and politics, and ultimately asking whether we should all try to be more like Alice.
