We are dog & pony dc.

We are a collective of hearing and Deaf artists who create
new plays and interactive experiences.

We believe in the power of collaboration, between artists and with the audience.

We’re pro-innovation and taking necessary leaps of faith.

We believe playfulness and generosity amplifies the impact of our work.

We seek to upend the way non-profit theatre is made and consumed, repositioning it in service to its audience and community

You complete us.

Gidon [my son] still talks about Beertown ALL THE TIME. Refers to it constantly. Very very impactful…

We are delighted dog & pony dc has committed itself to the advocacy and support of Deaf talent, artists, and audiences. Progress is seeing an ensemble of Deaf and hearing actors work as equals, with the Deaf actors free from meeting any pre-set criteria mandating that their characters be Deaf…instead of being reduced to novelties and/or tokens.

You won’t find Beertown on any map, but you’ll find the town’s essence in your heart as you struggle to figure out what items best tell your own story, and realize that memories change slightly each time you remember something, usually a result of twisting some of the details to create a supposedly better narrative. What starts out as a fun stay in a quirky little town ends up being surprisingly emotional.
