“Inspired puppetry conjures the extraordinary… with magic-realistic and comic touches.” Edge Media

The extravagantly creative, Obie-winning puppet troupe Wakka Wakka addresses human rights, consumerism and American-Chinese relations in this satirically comic puppet musical. Baby pandas, dancing appliances and romping middle-aged lovers populate Wakka’s universe of tiny-to-huge puppets, belting out original songs. As it did with climate change in Baby Universe (at the Hop in 2012) the company spins issues of our times into a vastly entertaining tale with surreal dimensions, lots of laughs and powerful take-aways.

Recommended for ages 16 and up. Adult language, puppet nudity.

Funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.

Funded in part by the Wetzel Family Fund for the Arts.

Programmed in collaboration with the 2016-2017 Dartmouth Centers Forum theme,
Protest and Activism: Insisting on Change.
