Free Trade promises prosperity, but for whom? When the power brokers gather at a Tokyo Hostess Bar, who are the real winners and losers? Avant-garde artist, Kazuko, or her American lover? Maybe the California microchip entrepreneur, whose business is up for grabs? Or the American-born Chinese dealmaker? In a close-up look at the Pacific Rim marketplace, this show asks the question: What is the price of global economic integration?

Reviews and Articles:

"...OFFSHORE is a star-spangled example of the current political dictum: Think Globally. One of the Troupe's strongest, most thought-provoking works"
San Francisco Examiner

"...OFFSHORE Is on the money - the Troupe's finest show in years..."
Sacramento Bee

"...Marring a bit of Kabuki to postmodern irony and dropping pop culture clues, OFFSHORE exposes the emptiness of the New World Order."
East Bay Express

"...Uniting physical comedy with dialogue, song and dance, OFFSHORE is both amusing and thoughtful - an outspoken richly layered satire, moving us most often to laughter with moments of heartbreaking eloquence..."
