2020 has proven to be not at all the year we were expecting for our 20th anniversary season. With Dragon’s physical space closed with no safe re-opening date in sight we’ve done a very fast pivot to provide a whole slew of online events to keep our isolated friends connected and to continue our mission of supporting local artists. Here’s a look at some of the events we’ve got planned in our regular rotation.
Mondays, Jan. 25 – March 8, 2p PT on Zoom
How well do your employees really know you as their leader? Have you ever told them what your values are? Join this 6-week course with leadership coach Joan Kling to to discover who you are as a leader and how to better communicate these values to your staff. (No class on President’s Day, Feb. 15)
Tuesdays, Jan. 26 – March 2, 2p PT on Zoom
Being a first time manager or leader can be a daunting task! After you’ve been promoted, you may be thinking, “Now what do I do? How do I actually do this?” Over six weeks, guided by Joan Kling’s coaching philosophy called P.I.E.S., participants will examine what makes them who they are and how they may further develop their leadership methods
Tuesdays at 11:00a PT on Zoom
We know how important it is to stay connected, and how powerful it can be to bond through storytelling. That’s why we created Audio Book Club: Party Line! Join us each Tuesday for a live reading of a short story done by a professional actor, followed by a lively facilitated discussion. Learn more here!
Third Sunday of the month at 2p PT on Crowdcast
COEXIST Short Play Clinic is a program for playwrights to submit short plays (under 20 minutes) exploring a new theme every month. Readings provide a “fishbowl” workshop for playwrights to receive feedback if desired. Facilitated and managed by Dragon’s New Works Director, Kimberly Ridgeway. Check out last months shows here.
Last Sunday of the month at 7p PT on Crowdcast
Live at the Dragon is an open stage night as a part of Dragon’s Nest. These events highlight the talent of all kinds of artists. Hip hop, MCs, dance cyphers, and more celebrate the urban arts. Details on the show will be announced soon! Check out last month’s performers here!
Third Saturday of the month at 11:30p PT on Twitch
These will be evenings for our community to gather around the virtual campfire! Feel free to roast your own marshmallows and enjoy hot cocoa for the telling of spooky stories. Sleepless with the Dragon is hosted by Samantha Ricci. More details about this event here.
Select Wednesdays at 6:30p PT on Twitch
Feeling lonely? Want to just hang out and talk about things? Bring your own beverage, whether it’s a gin and tonic or a ginger ale, and talk about art and life and the world, whatever you’re missing from the lack of human contact. Consider this a party/shindig/salon hang out! Drinking with the Dragon is hosted by Co-Artistic Directors Max and Alika.
