Alice & The Aces
klpac, Sentul Park, Jalan Strachan, off Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah (formerly Jalan Ipoh), KL (03 4047 9000/www.klpac.org). To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Vivace Danz World have put together a whimsical ballet production for charity. Funds will be going to Hope Worldwide Malaysia, an international non-profit organisation which implements programmes locally in health and medicine, food and nutrition, and education. Choreographed by Lu Wit Chin, ‘Alice & The Aces’ will explore the topsy-turvy world of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Through the Looking Glass’ through neo-classical ballet. Sounds too serious for the kids? You’re forgetting the tea parties, the talking animals and the sheer joy in nonsense. Featuring eclectic music, exuberant dance and Lewis Carroll’s madcap characters, this show is one for the whole family to enjoy. Sat, Aug 29, 8.30pm; Sun, Aug 30, 3pm & 8.30pm. Tickets from RM88-RM138.
