“Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.”
Vincent van Gogh
Is “being different” a key to freedom? Or is it a cage? How “different” can you get before becoming “strange”, then “a freak”, then “mentally ill”? Are there even clear borders to what’s “normal” – isn’t it all actually a matter of context and circumstance? Join us on the wings of fantasy into our own wee dance Wonderland, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s books.
