BRING THE MAGIC
Dragon Knights Inc. is a highly interactive performance group that has been inspiring artistic imagination in the community of Street Theatre with Stilt Puppetry and roaming performances for over 20 years.
Trained and performed in the Arts of Circus, Mask, theater, Make-up and Puppetry, we offer visual and interactive events based on multicultural roots. The characters enchant the audience with an innovative combination of circus and theatre, performance and poetry, dream and technology. The troupe captivates and entertains the spectators by bringing to life over-sized "Stilt Puppets”. These whimsical mechanical animals offer a colorful parade creating a strong element of surprise as they interact with the public, before and after the show.
Dragon Knight Stilt Theater allows you to enter into the dream world of exotic creatures to become part of the reality that only imagination, technical innovation, and team work can produce.
Wandering with shows, fairs, and festivals for over 20 years, the Dragon Knights present a new production in 2014, call “Wander, Wonder World”. Vol 1. Time Off!
Inspired by the comic book adaptations of Jules Verne’s novels, the characters in Time Off! have just landed on the surface of the Earth after their journey from the core. The actors, dancers, and musicians are dressed as comic book characters while operating the wheeled artistic vehicles: a winged boat, a musical canoe, and a submarine cockpit.
Escorted by acrobats on stilts, these boats drive through the streets, capturing the attention and following of onlookers. The troupe leads the crowd to a location were the engines serve as the backdrop to a full-scale, high-energy show featuring intense fight scenes, graceful dancing, acrobatic tricks, live music, comedy, and jump rope on suspension stilts.
Only a few hundred athletes in the world practice suspension stilts, and it is only after years of training with the best coaches from Europe that the first Americans are able to showcase these powerful stilts during “Wander, Wonder World”.
