Craft and heart breathe fiery life into dragons
First they did it with dinosaurs. Now, the team at Global Creatures is about to unleash dragons onto the stage.
The arena version of the DreamWorks Animation film How to Train Your Dragon will have its world premiere in Melbourne on March 2, before a 10-day season in Sydney from March 15.
The mechanical engineers, sculptors, painters, costumers, model makers and puppeteers from the Creature Technology Company (CTC), the animatronics arm of Global Creatures, will create at least 24 dragons for a show that will include acrobats and aerial artists, projections and flying creatures.
