This new production by one of the world’s greatest living choreographers, Christopher Wheeldon brings Lewis Carroll’s classic story to the stage in magnificent detail, blending the spectacle of Broadway with his rigorous ballet style.

We have plenty of automation happening in #CharlieAU, close to a dozen different set pieces that travel on to the stage via tracks. There are three tracks on the stage, two across and one up and down stage and five moving 'rabbits' which we knife the set piece into, with the rabbits being moved by winches either side of the stage. The set pieces like the Cauldron and Chocolate Shop, can be driven on and off stage both manually by the operator or via a pre-determined time and distance cue which
