Top Gun meets 007 with a J-Pop backing track!
1993. China launches Operation Skyduck. Captain Yan and Agent Chang are sent to steal America’s most prized flight simulation software, when they find themselves trapped by hotshot NSA agent, Commander Kendrick. His plan? To destroy China’s military ambition once and for all… by infiltrating their dreams!
Skyduck: A Chinese Spy Comedy is a bilingual solo show written by and starring Sam Wang, who plays seven hilarious characters in a rollicking tale of international espionage, from a lovestruck Chinese secret agent to a dazzling J-Pop star to a foul-mouthed Australian aeronautic choreographer – and half the story is in Mandarin (with surtitles).
Blending lo-fi with high-tech, and utilising projection, puppets, musical numbers, and a dizzying array of transforming and handmade gadgets, Skyduck deploys all the charm of rough theatre alongside a truly impressive use of technology to recreate dogfights, chases, and a multi-layered psychedelic journey live onstage.
Prepare for lift-off!
