Touring visual theatre and object movement based pieces of original theatre, featuring puppetry.
TOURING SHOW- Made in China
Duration: 80 minutes
Audience Size: 200-500
Puppet Style: Hand & Rod, Bunraku, Chinese Hand, Full Body, Large-Scale
Stage Size: 20' w x 20' d
Description: A darkly comedic puppet musical inspired by true events, MADE IN CHINA is a fantastical exploration of human righs, consumerism, and American-Chinese relations as told through the unlikely love story between an odd middle-aged American woman and her chinese ex-pat neighbor. Baby pandas, dancing appliances, and romping middle-aged lovers populate Wakka Wakka's universe of tiny-t0-huge puppets, belting out original songs. As with climate change in Baby Universe (2010) and the global financial crisis in Saga (2013), the company spins issues of our times into a vastly entertaining tale with surreal dimensions, lots of laughs, and powerful take-aways.
