about the artist

Dragonboy Productions creates theatre that tell stories and unfolds in front of you as you watch; a group of actors and an audience sharing and experiencing together in an act of communal imagination. Theatre offer us the potential to transcend the moment we chance to live in and to imagine what it’s like to be in someone else’s time and space. It can provide a window for us to see how other people live, how they react in different situations and maybe in turn help us to imagine how we would feel and what we would do.
