about the production
DRAGON is a visually stunning, fantasy-genre puppetry show for families and children aged 8+, taking audiences on an exhilarating 70-min adventure, mixing cutting-edge projection and digital animation with beautiful live puppetry, performed by a cast of 3 to a soaring original score. This epic, thought-provoking and wordless show is perfect for adults and children aged 8+, and audiences with limited English or English as a second language. Dragon has been created by Life and Limb Puppets, the co-founder of Newcastle's Moving Parts Puppetry Festival. The production is supported by Horse and Bamboo, Alphabet Theatre and Curious School of Puppetry.
