7001 NEEDS YOU!

Wakka Wakka has been honored by an invitation to perform at the 21st UNIMA Congress and World Puppetry Festival http://www.unima2012.org/.  We are thrilled at the opportunity to bring our work to Asia for the first time ever, however performing in China with our 6 person team, set, technical gear and our many, many puppets is quite an expense.  We have successfully raised a large portion of this expense thanks to a generous grant from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, however we are still short of our goal.  

Without you, we can not bring our unique blend of puppetry and visual theatre to China.  The puppets need your support!

ABOUT BABY UNIVERSE

Nominated for 3 Drama Desk Awards 2011

Since time immemorial, humankind has spun tales of our own looming destruction.  In the face of the fear, hopelessness and desperation such tales elicit, we have told stories of salvation.  Stories of a messenger with superhuman powers offering deliverance. Stories of hope.

"BABY UNIVERSE" is such a story.

On the brink of annihilation , the last inhabitants of a doomed earth furiously search for an escape from the angry, dying sun.  The planets are scorched and desperate and the few remaining souls live primarily in bunkers and have resorted to cannibalism.  

The end threatens, imminent...

In an original piece presented with over 30 puppets, masks, a robot, animated video projection and a space-age score, Wakka Wakka spins the bizarre tale of Baby Universe – the ultimate savior, the last hope for deliverance, the messenger on whom the fate of an entire race rests.
