Students collaborate with Wakka Wakka on Their New Show, “Radioactive” in Atelier Course

Princeton students from the spring 2019 Atelier course “Radioactive: Wakka Wakka” presented work created with guest lecturers Gwendolyn Warnock and Kirjan Waage from Wakka Wakka on their newest show, “Radioactive,” through puppetry, live animation, and optical illusions as well as improvisations based on research for the project. An ecological science fiction piece, “Radioactive” explores puppetry in the context of darkness. In a space so devoid of light that the spectator cannot see their own hand, using very low and controlled light from the stage, images and figures will be brought to life and manipulated to create illusions, magic and wonder.
