Description

Normal is a wound, weapon, and lie. And refusing to believe it is the beginning of freedom. The Fate of the Dragon takes a poetic, heartbreaking look at the injustices that societies have normalized and the devastating consequences that many face just for being different. However, this performance’s message is not one of despair, for it also poses a hopeful vision of “the new normal”. The extraordinary illustrations that accompany this piece were born of travel magic. Hear the story behind the story.
