Description

Written by Kirjan Waage and Gwendolyn Warnock

Presented by Wakka Wakka Productions and Nordland Visual Theatre  

Wakka Wakka Productions, a New York City based visual theater company, specializes in highly physical productions that overlap a range of styles — including grotesque, absurd, and clown — and incorporate elements such as puppetry, masks and original music. The company has toured extensively in Scandinavia, China, and the UK and received the 2011 Obie Award Grant for Outstanding Work.

Baby Universe_, Wakka Wakka’s magnetically whimsical puppet odyssey, was developed in association with Nordland Visual Theatre. Located in the arctic fishing community of Stamsund, the company is the leading developer of visual theatre in Norway, facilitating the creation of traditional puppet theater, as well as works that draw from the visual arts, theater, mime, dance and multimedia.
