Juan Gedovius

Beyond the white rabbit

Querétaro 2021, 

If classic works have something in common, it is that they can be interpreted and reinterpreted again and again, each time finding new perspectives and possible meanings, and so each era has its own dialogue with the work. The entertaining and versatile Mexican illustrator, writer and musician Juan Gedovius presents Lewis Caroll’s great works, Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass and The Hunting of the Snark, illustrated by him. This activity is a look at the fantasy world of Lewis Carrol, with images shown to help the audience explore the English writer’s mythology. Here, Juan will share the story of Alice, the girl who, one summer’s day, saw a white rabbit with a jacket and a pocket watch, and followed it, falling into Wonderland and there discovering a strange, varied and unforgettable series of characters. Juan will share with us his own adventure of transforming this great story into his own images.

For children of all ages
