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.

I felt valued as an audience member, I felt committed to the the rest of the audience and the cast, and I felt like I had experienced something I could ONLY have experienced in that room, on that night – how cool! That’s not an experience you get anywhere else!

Johanna Middleton, audience 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.

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.

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