dog & pony dc
dog & pony dc is an ensemble of artists who devise innovative performances that incorporate new ways for audiences to experience theater. We create productions that are visceral and unexpected with a lingering impact.
We are attracted to alternative approaches to pretty much everything about both theatre-making and -participating. We seek methods of creating work that challenge conventions, break molds, and explore new territory. We draw inspiration from our members' personal experiences and their curiosities about the world and our place in it. Ultimately, we create the work that we do because we simply want to know "what else is there?"
Our presence fills a gap in the DC theatre community by providing irreverent and shrewd spins on stories and styles that current audiences view as conventional.
Our approach engages artists and audiences as a cohesive team, "conspiring" together as integral participants in the creation of each night's show.
We are committed to making theatre that is engaging and financially accessible.
