Secrets of Alice in Wonderland
Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is famous as a story that doesn’t make much sense – unless you know that the author was a mathematician.
This part-performance, part-discussion introduced you to chapters of Alice in Wonderland with mathematical links. Mathematics is an evolving field of ideas now, as it was when Alice in Wonderland was written in the 19th century.
Performed by science communicator Cobi Smith as Alice, with narration by University of Adelaide mathematician David Butler.
