Welcome to our gallery! The Dragon and the Wanderer premiered in Philadelphia, PA in the spring of 2019. We busked our way across Europe from July-September 2019, before returning to the U.S. Please enjoy these images from our performances, as well as videos showing a few snippets of our dress rehearsals, as well as some concept-work for our puppets and stage.
