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.

This is a playful interactive tale about the myriad of ways we experience grief, and the opportunities we have to help each other through it. Audiences of 20 will set out to uncover the mystery of Thea L’Anna in a branching narrative adventure story with light escape room-like puzzling elements, surprising characters, and poetic dialogue. We’ve shared so much grief together, it’s worth sharing the recovery too.
Come acknowledge the changes everyone has endured during this pandemic, with an emphasis on its impact to the arts. Join us for our last show at this venue as we pay tribute to the massive variety of circus performances we have done at the Dragon!
