Welcome to the Dragon

Sure, theatre can communicate emotion, evoke great feelings, and provide entertaining experiences. But we know that theatre can also inspire change; can stir people to engage in movements and ideas larger than themselves; can be a catalyst for building the society that we aspire to exist within. Guided by the slogan, “Incubate, Educate, Innovate,” our work aims to bring people together in the most unlikely of places.

Let’s question everything.

Let’s get lost.

Let’s break it all and put it back together better than ever.
