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 love and hope.

“BABY UNIVERSE” is such a story.

In an original piece presented with over 30 puppets, 5 actors/puppeteers, masks, a Stephen Hawking inspired 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.

“Magnetically visual scenes…all the production elements float wonderfully adrift in an orbit of whimsy.”
-The Village Voice

“…many imaginative wonders in this cautionary and surprisingly moving production.”
