WAKKA WAKKA Presents
MADE IN CHINA
A Co-production with Nordland Visual Theatre, MiNensemblet, and The Hopkins Center, Dartmouth College
JUST ANNOUNCED: TALKBACK on Friday, February 17
Join us after the show for a post-show discussion with Gwendolyn Warnock (Co-Artistic Director of Wakka Wakka), Gabrielle Brechner (Executive Director of Wakka Wakka), Sarah Cook (the Freedom House), and Herb Tam (the Museum of Chinese in America).
From the creative talents behind the highly-regarded Baby Universe: A Puppet Odyssey comes a new darkly comedic puppet musical.
Inspired by true events, Made In China is a fantastical exploration of human rights, consumerism, and morality as told through the unlikely love story between an odd middle-aged American woman and her Chinese ex-pat neighbor. Made In China features 30 puppets, seven puppeteers, music inspired by both American and Chinese traditions, and animated video.
