Made in China 2.0

Wang Chong / China

“Absolutely fascinating.”

— Joyce Kulhawik

Up close and personal with one of China’s most provocative exports.


Wang Chong is recognized around the world as one of Beijing’s most creative, provocative theatre directors, celebrated for his visionary experiments with classic and contemporary plays. In Made in China 2.0, he 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.

An immersive, funny, brilliantly crafted one-person-tour-de-force, Made in China 2.0 reveals an illuminating portrait of family, pop culture, and the role of the artist and provocateur in uncertain times. Join us for the ultimate theatrical conversation starter.
