Made In China 2.0

Malthouse-Made-In-China-2.0-Wang-Chong-photo-by-Zixuan-WangUp close and personal with one of China’s most provocative exports, the Malthouse Theatre presents Wang Chong’s Made In China 2.0 in the Beckett Theatre from 28 February 2023.

Wang Chong is recognised around the world as one of Beijing’s most significant theatre directors, celebrated for his visionary experiments with classic and contemporary plays.

Following the sell-out success of Season 2017’s Little Emperors (written by Lachlan Philpott and directed by Wang Chong), Chong returns to Malthouse and collaborates with co-director Emma Valente 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 theater and film and is presented with the support of the Playking Foundation.
