Inspired by Choreographer Edwaard Liang’s fascination with a replica of a small Siberian town captured within a snow globe, Wunderland is an abstract experience that allows audience members to find their own way through the beauty, emotion, and humanity of a winter wonderland. To match the pulsating rhythms of music by Philip Glass, Liang created movement that seamlessly molds striking poses and geometric formations to inspire both tension and harmony.
