July 27-30

Where Ottawa - - HERE & NOW -

Get ready for the streets, build­ings, and trees of down­town Ot­tawa to be­come a stage for two tow­er­ing beasts. “The Spirit of the Dragon-Horse, With Stolen Wings” stars a 20-me­tre-long spi­der named La Princesse and a 12-me­tre-high horse-dragon named Long-Ma. With skin and fea­tures of sculpted wood, the mas­sive pair’s me­chan­i­cal guts and skele­tons of steel move with the help of 33 op­er­a­tors. The mon­u­men­tal, four-day play will be the first North Amer­i­can per­for­mance by La Ma­chine, a French pro­duc­tion com­pany based in Nantes.
