A darkly comedic puppet musical inspired by true events, MADE IN CHINA is a fantastical exploration of human rights, 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-to-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.

MADE IN CHINA features 30 puppets, seven puppeteers, music inspired by both American and Chinese traditions, and animated video.  A co-production with Nordland Visual Theatre and the Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth College, MADE IN CHINA will premiere Off-Broadway in January 2017 at 59E59.  It has been generously supported by the Creative Capital Foundation, the MAP Fund, the New York State Council on the Arts, The Jim Henson Foundation,  The Norwegian Arts Council, and the Eugene O’Neill Center.  For more information and updates, please JOIN OUR MAILING LIST.
