Iceland.  Family.  Crisis…  Gunnar Oddmunson’s life is in ruins.  He is standing alone with a shovel in his hands, wondering how it all went wrong.  He was feeling lucky, successful, and had big dreams for the future before the Icelandic economy collapsed, setting a new world record in national bankruptcy. Now he dreams only of justice.  When his family abandons him and the bank takes his house and car, Gunnar’s ancient Norse desire for blood revenge awakens. The battle has begun…

Brought to you by the OBIE award winning and Drama Desk nominated theater company Wakka Wakka, SAGA features 30 puppets, ranging from 3 inches to 10 feet, portrayed by an international cast of puppeteers from Iceland, Norway, Ireland and the US.

 

Wakka Wakka Productions is a visual theatre company with a mission to push the boundaries of imagination by creating works that are bold, unique and unpredictable.  Since 2001 the company has created and produced six original works, which have toured extensively domestically and abroad.  (Saga is the seventh produced work.)  The productions have been highly physical, overlapping in a wide range of styles, including grotesque, absurd and clown, incorporating elements such as object manipulations, puppetry, masks and original music. 

 

In 2008, Wakka Wakka was awarded a UNIMA Citation of Excellence for Fabrik: The Legend of M. Rabinowitz, and nominated for a Drama Desk Award in the category of Unique Theatrical Experience. In 2011, Wakka Wakka’s Baby Universe (presented at Baruch Performing Arts Center) was nominated for three Drama Desk Awards, including Best Director of a Play, Best Music in a Play, and Best Sound Design of a Play.
