The Cheshire cat in Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" gradually disappears
before Alice's eyes until all that is left is a sardonic grin. A grin without a cat. This
short story told by Forsythe dancers becomes an optically intriguing work of
autonomously dancing shadows and coinciding dance movements. This last,
precisely choreographed video dance production created at Frankfurt's Mousonturm
blends images and movements, by means of a specially created mirror, into a DJ-
driven, ironic revue, in which dancer Chris Hoh Chau Wah as Alice triumphs over
deception in a lobster quadrille.
