Willemieke’s interpretation of Humpty Dumpty – meeting Classical Charactere and Rococo baroque
Humpty Dumpty sits on a wall and criticizes Alice for having a name that doesn’t mean anything, explaining that all names should mean something. Humpty Dumpty treats Alice rudely, boasting that he can change the meanings of words at will. When Alice learns this, she asks Humpty Dumpty to explain the words of the nonsense poem “Jabberwocky” to her. He defines the words of the first stanza and then recites a portion of his own poem. He abruptly bids her goodbye, and Alice storms off, annoyed.
A hilarious dance, based on classical charactere, involving big dresses and even bigger wigs. A theatrical spectacle.
