Wakka Wakka Productions, Inc. is a non-profit visual theatre company based in NYC and Oslo. Our mission is to push the boundaries of the imagination by creating works that are bold, unique and unpredictable.
Since 2001 Wakka Wakka has created and produced eleven original works of theatre which have toured extensively throughout the US and abroad. All of Wakka Wakka’s productions have been highly physical, overlapping in a wide range of styles and incorporating elements such as puppetry, object manipulation, masks and original music.
Wakka Wakka has been honored with a Drama Desk Award, an Obie Award and two UNIMA Citations of Excellence. Additionally, the company’s work has been nominated for four Drama Desk Awards, a Helen Hayes Award and a Hawes Design Award.
Wakka Wakka is currently building working on a trilogy: ANIMALIA. The shows include Animal Riot, The Immortal Jellyfish Girl, and Day of the Dead Animals.
The company is led by Gabrielle Brechner, Kirjan Waage and Gwendolyn Warnock and supported by company members Andrew Manjuck and Peter Russo.
