MADE IN AMERICA is a site-specific performance premieres at Joe’s Pub in The Public Theater NYC from the 30th of April to the 19th of May 2019.
MADE IN AMERICA explores and dissects how ‘WE’, from the outside, consume American culture and movies; which leads to forming different opinions of the ‘true’ America. In the course of this debate, ‘WE’ question our very identities as international artistes – Is America the new Rome – where we are required to seek out success there for the ultimate validation and approval? Are our views of other cultures based mainly on our consumption of mass media and stereotypes which we are exposed to on a daily basis? Do we know more about this new Rome and its inhabitants (celebrities) then we know about our own countries? The staging of this work at The Public, NYC, affords us an opportunity to comment through the lens of humor and voyeurism on the effect of American cultural idolatry and the conflict of cultural, political and social viewpoints that stem for it.
Formed in 2004, TerryandTheCuz has since established itself as a company with a truly global appeal. They have written, directed, created and designed work for theatre, dance, puppetry and art installations for companies, governments, festivals and artists across Asia, America, Europe and Australia.
TerryandTheCuz strives to write, create and design intelligent, humorous, passionate, visceral performance art that reflects and engages with our changing society, and to attract newer and more diverse audiences to the arts. We seek to constantly develop and extend our collaborative performance-making practice with artists both local and abroad, to find new forms, voices and narratives in all our endeavours.
TerryandTheCuz have been nominated for a New York City Innovative Theatre Award, 7 Melbourne Greenroom Awards, a Royal Welsh Theatre Award and is a Melbourne Greenroom Award winner for Innovation in International collaboration for their work ‘SK!N’ and 5-time winner of the National Arts Award in Malaysia for their works ‘Klue,Doh!’ and ‘Flatland’.
