Made In China 2.0: One of Beijing’s most provactive exports returns to Malthouse

Made In China 2.0

Get up close and personal with one of China’s most provocative exports when experimental theatre maker Wang Chong presents Made In China 2.0 at Malthouse Theatre’s Season 2023.

Chong returns to Malthouse Theatre following the sell-out success of Little Emperors, presented in Asia TOPA 2017, and teams up with director and production designer Emma Valente, dramaturg Mark Pritchard, and co-designer Emma Lockhart Wilson to shine the spotlight on his own experiences as an artist.

In Made in China 2.0, 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. An immersive, funny, brilliantly crafted one-person-tour-de-force, this production reveals an illuminating portrait of family, pop culture, and the role of the artist and provocateur in uncertain times.

Made In China 2.0 recently had its premiere season abroad at ArtsEmerson, Boston’s leading presenter of contemporary world theatre and film and plays from 28 February – 19 March in Malthouse Theatre’s Beckett Theatre.
