It’s the year 2048 and an unseen beast is terrorizing the land. In this near-future re-telling of the legend of the Wawel Dragon, Dragonslayer invites audiences to join Our Majesty Krak’s Republic so they may benefit from the protection and knowledge this body provides.
AnA Collaborations Directors, Audrey Rachelle, former Sleep No More cast, and Alex Oliva bring their experience performing and choreographing immersive productions to Dragonslayer, a 90-minute immersive experience with live original composition by Maciej Lewandowski, called an “electronics specialist” (Seth Colter Walls, The New York Times). Inside the medieval architecture of Good Shepherd Chapel, this experimental score accompanies a cast of eight dancers, highly-detailed costumes by Atelier Abene, and dynamic lighting design by cinematographer Blake Horn to transport audiences into a post-apocalyptic dystopian future.
Performers guide audience members around the Chapel, encouraging them to explore and choose which 13 of the 36 scenes they wish to experience. Audience members may be selected for intimate one-on-one encounters, and will be given the chance to actively participate. They might find themselves whispering with a member of the Resistance, witnessing a woman sacrificed to save them, or asked to carry Our Majesty’s burden.
