We are dog & pony dc.

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.

We appreciate dog & pony dc’s high artistic standards and aspiration to change the audience’s perception of its role in a theatrical experience.

Grateful to have the opportunity to observe and work with the amazing Rachel Grossman and the dog & pony dc crew.

One of the best performative experiences I’ve had….

Caitlin C., audience member regarding SEVEN AGES: YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE SENSES

dog & pony dc posits theatre as an artistic democracy in which the actors serve as guides establishing the rules of play, but largely lets the audience fill in the details of the world of the show.

Shannon Davies Mancus, former ensemble member

Night in and night out, participating with dog & pony dc was a draining, fulfilling, exhausting, stimulating, frightening, rewarding, endearing, emboldening, emotional, beautiful experience…I can only hope that many others will have the privilege to partner with them as I did, because the incredibly lovely people that make up their company seem to leave nothing but love, growth, and positive change in their wake.
