Wonderland In Alice – A Look Into Rehearsals

Wonderland In Alice at Theatre Peckham April 2023


Kira Nichols (They/She) will play the role of Alice in this fresh take on the classic tale.

Kira began their professional training at The Hammond in Chester, where they trained for three years in a variety of dance styles before being accepted into DART Studios in Berlin. During Kira’s year at Dart, she collaborated with several choreographers, including Diego de la Rosa, who premiered his piece ‘Denial’.

Kira Nicholas said: ‘I am beyond excited to be playing the role of Alice. I feel truly privileged to be bringing Alice into a non-binary role, exploring their gender identity at the same time as exploring mine. As a non-binary person, it means so much to me to play a character like this, bringing necessary representation and awareness to gender identity.’
Further casting to be announced, tickets are on sale now for this emotive adventure to Wonderland.
