Drama Desk Award-winning Wakka Wakka returns to the New York stage with
THE IMMORTAL JELLYFISH GIRL.
The year is 2555: large swaths of earth’s surface are considered dead zones, and mass extinction has begun. There is a war (there is always a war), and as both sides grow desperate, their thirst for destruction becomes more and more volatile.
An improbable meeting between an orphan and a jellyfish girl threatens to tip the balance forever, but in whose favor, and at what cost? A mysterious man in a homemade fox costume has seen this all before, has lived this tragedy too many times already.
But in this puppet show – he is determined – it will end differently.
Hilarious, ridiculous and virtuosic, THE IMMORTAL JELLYFISH GIRL blends innovative projection and original music puppetry that soars through dimensions, unconfined by time, gravity or biology.
Don’t miss the limited Off-Broadway run of this action-packed, gripping tale of humanity on the brink of annihilation and the unlikely heroine who just might save us all!
“The Immortal Jellyfish Girl” will be the fifth major co-production with Figur Teateret i Nordland.
