Dragon - Edinburgh International Festival 2015

Edinburgh International Festival 2015 at The Lyceum
Presented by Vox Motus/ National Theatre of Scotland/ Tianjin People's Arts Theatre
Directed by Jamie Harrison and Candice Edmunds

Dragon is a story for adults, teenagers and children with vivid imaginations, told without words and featuring fast moving physical theatre, puppetry and original music.

Created by Vox Motus, the National Theatre of Scotland and Tianjin People’s Arts Theatre, Dragon tells the story of Tommy whose life, since the death of his mother, has gone from bad to worse. One restless night Tommy goes to the window and throws back the curtain to find himself face to face with a dragon.

Dragon was awarded Best Show for Children and Young People at the UK Theatre Awards 2014.
