Wintercity Wrap-up: Nathan Phillips Square Hijinks
As the evening darkened, the crowd lit up as a 15-member cast in colourful costumes with oversized props brought the Lewis Carroll story to life.
Their award-winning open-air theatre troupe weaved through the audience on metre-high stilts, set to live music. It was perhaps a bit scary and hard to follow at times for the younger crowd, but they more than made up for that with the outlandish costumes and quick banter.
More photos from the event, plus info on a silent dance party after the jump....
It was delightful to see fathers with their little daughters on their shoulders captivated by this free outdoor event.
For something a little different this weekend, check out Saturday afternoon's Silent Rave set for 3:14 p.m. in Nathan Phillips Square. For an idea of what this is all about, check out Newmindspace's Silent Boogie from just over a year ago.
Bring your iPod and headphone y-jacks to share your tunes as you dance as passersby watch in bewilderment.
