VAS: Wakka Wakka: Fine Arts Center Ball Theater, 8:00PM
Sometime in the future, a government program to save the population of an unnamed, dying planet in a dying universe is furiously underway. In a race against the clock, scientist-generated baby universes are placed in the care of lonely spinsters in the hope that one might nurture a savior universe capable of birthing a planet that can support the populace of an entire world. An original piece by the NYC-based troupe Wakka Wakka (which has previously performed FABRIK: The Legend of M. Rabinowitz in 2009), Baby Universe is presented with over 30 puppets, 5 actors/puppeteers, masks, a robot, animated video projection, and a space-age score. The New York Times called Baby Universe a “funny and poignant eco-fable” and that “in this age of overproduced spectacle, there’s something magical and refreshing about Wakka Wakka’s low-tech, rough-and-ready aesthetic.”
