A co-production with Nordland Visual Theatre
Written and directed by Gwendolyn Warnock & Kirjan Waage
Winner of the Drama Desk Special Award for Sophisticated Puppetry, Wakka Wakka (Made in China, 2017) returns with THE IMMORTAL JELLYFISH GIRL.
Part coming-of-age story and part dystopian tragedy, THE IMMORTAL JELLYFISH GIRL soars through dimensions, unconfined by time, gravity, or biology. The year is 2555: large swaths of the earth’s surface are considered dead zones and global extinction has begun. Yet in this age of loneliness and destruction there is still hope…
Hilarious, ridiculous, and virtuosic, THE IMMORTAL JELLYFISH GIRL takes its audience on a wild journey through a post-apocalyptic future.
Recommended for ages 10+
