ALICE at the Lilypad in Cambridge, MA

  • The Lilypad 1353 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02139 United States (map)

A real life Alice in Wonderland, pianist Mary Prescott, delves into a world of experimental art music – a hyper-sensory dimension of fantasy, curiosity, and unpredictability. Examining Lewis Carrol’s surreal Victorian novel through improvisation, Prescott tries and tests the concepts of time, identity, reality and rules, noting that traditions behave strangely in Wonderland. A classically trained adventurer who thrives in an unlikely playground, Prescott unbuttons a naive yet profound identity, eliciting cavernous, expressive sounds of harmonious discord. Prescott invites listeners to explore their own whims and curiosities from behind the curtains of this bravely evocative music.
