The following description comes from the event organizer.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.
As new members, audiences are initiated into a nomadic way of life where their security hinges on their willingness to respond to an ever-shifting environment. Throughout the 90-minute experience, they are free to explore, interact with, and uncover what may be simmering under the surface. What sacrifices will our new members choose to make? What contributions will they offer?
AnA Directors, Audrey Rachelle, former Sleep No More cast, and Alex Oliva bring their experience performing and choreographing immersive productions in NYC to Seattle. A cast of 9 dancers are accompanied by live original electronic and piano composition by Brooklyn-based experimental musician Maciej Lewandowski. Inside the medieval architecture of Good Shepherd Chapel, highly-detailed costumes by Atelier Abene and dynamic lighting design by cinematographer Blake Horn will transport the audience into an 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.
Due to scenes with nudity and distressing content, Dragonslayer is recommended for audiences ages 13 and up.
