We appreciate dog & pony dc’s high artistic standards and aspiration to change the audience’s perception of its role in a theatrical experience.
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.
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!
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.
Gidon [my son] still talks about Beertown ALL THE TIME. Refers to it constantly. Very very impactful…
