Alice Day Caucus Race

AliceDay_5 AliceDay_1 AliceDay_4Alice Day Caucus Race, Oxford (UK) 2012


To celebrate the 150th year anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s first-telling of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Oxford’s Story Museum wanted to stage a full-scale participatory re-enactment of the story’s caucus race; to take place in the magical Oxford setting of Christ Church Meadow.

Gang of Six created site decoration for a children’s dance workshop event produced by Cirque Bijou, attended by over 2000 Alice-fans. A large entrance installation: a bamboo ‘A’ for Alice, was adorned with bespoke oversize cards painted with characters by children at a workshop on previous day in Oxford Town Hall. We also produced A-frames for dance workshops with associated graphics and signage for and around the site.
