Made in China 2.0
Wang Chong / China
“This collaboration with chong, himself an immensely sensitive and supple theatre-maker, is … rich and highly satisfying” ★★★★★
— Time Out (on Chong’s Little Emperors)
Pushing theater to the edge has never seemed so easy.
Provocative and boundary-erasing director Wang Chong takes audiences on a journey deep inside his personal experiences of creating theatre around the globe, unpacking stereotypes of the global expectations of what China brings to the world stage. In Made in China 2.0, Chong brilliantly places himself into the role of lead performer, where his status as a novice actor becomes one of the show’s inarguable charms.
“When I present my work abroad, my international colleagues are always very interested in my past. ‘How do you make such works in China?’ So I thought, why not make a show about it?”
– Wang Chong
An immersive combination that strides the line between a pop culture lecture and dramatic performance, Made in China 2.0 incorporates vivid documentary footage–a signature of the artist’s work from Théatre du Rêve Expérimental—a company he founded in 2008.
