Dragon Steps

Steps Series  

Juice Festival – NewcastleGateshead
26th October – 4th November

Dragon Steps was commissioned by Juice, a festival for young people which runs across a hostof arts venues in NewcastleGateshead. The 2013 had a Dragon theme, in part because Seven Storieswas due to open a major exhibition celebrating Cressdia Cowell‘s Dragon Books.

Great North Museum: Hancock
Northern Stage
Dance City
