Vox Motus, the National Theatre of Scotland and Tianjin People's Arts Theatre present the world premiere of DRAGON.
**** The Scotsman
"difficult to miss the elegance of the show's 80 minute narrative curve, the emotional subtlety of the story it tells and the sheer visual beauty and imagination of the telling"
**** The Guardian
"one of those theatrical experiences that will live forever in the memory."
**** Whats On Stage
"a fanciful and bewitching show which strikes at the soul and at the mind."
Tommy can’t sleep. He hasn’t been able to since his mum died a year ago. Since then, life has gone from bad to worse. His dad is grief-stricken, his big sister ignores him and he’s become the target for the school bully. Then one restless night, Tommy goes to the window, throws back the curtain and…
…a dragon is looking at him. Straight in the eye.
An extraordinary visual story told without words, featuring puppetry, illusion and original music.
A show for adults, teenagers and children with vivid imaginations.
Recommended for 9 years +
The show is completely accessible to Deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
