Storytelling has been a crucial tool for creators across history. Alice and the World of Sorrow was created as a way to find a new method of storytelling that uses the latest video and audio technologies to tell a classic story that has seen different versions in all kinds of media; from novels to film, TV, stage, and opera.
(Starring Serena Motola)
Alice looks and acts like any other young female in modern Tokyo. Those sleepless nights when all you can think about is what you can’t achieve and start to give up on yourself… Sometimes it feels like this world is made up of those moments, repeating over and over. One night, as Alice was about to throw her life away, she finds an entrance to a bizarre world. It’s a world far away from the hectic city and any pressure from other people. A place where an older woman floats in the air, pushing Alice to look inside and come face to face with the sorrow hidden deep in her heart. At the end of this strange journey, Alice, once lost in her search for meaning, decides to return to the real world. In this odd little story, although sorrow may not come to an end, it is a part of what makes you who you are. We hope you’ll feel a little refreshed after taking part in this experience.
