The influential artist who goes by Maleonn creates “Papa’s Time Machine,” a stage show about time travel, featuring mechanical puppets to try to help him come to terms with his father’s dementia. Maleonn teams up with his father, Ma Ke, a well-known Peking Opera director, to create the autobiographical show, which confronts mortality and allows the two men to connect before Ma Ke’s memories fade.
