> DESCRIPTION

“Fresh and original… [Wunderbaum] is political and raw, its actors also rockers.” –Los Angeles Times

There is no way to know exactly what will happen when the daring Dutch theater ensemble Wunderbaum premieres a new work developed during a three-week REDCAT residency. Joining forces with Los Angeles performer, writer and activist John Malpede, the inventive artists are weaving many stories and themes together: The tale of their friend Inez, who lives next to Rotterdam's controversial "Santa" sculpture by LA Artist Paul McCarthy, which includes a 5 ft. butt plug; the adventures encountered during their LA trip (staged in a replica of a room at The Standard Hotel); and the breaking news from the Hate Crimes trial of a leading Dutch Politician who also seeks to slash funding for public art in The Netherlands. Expect an evening that is provocative, wildly funny, and perhaps a bit unsettling...

Funded in part with generous support from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs’ Cultural Exchange International Program.
