Giant Puppets
Big Dragon Puppet

Through spectacle and storytelling, we will re-imagine the St George and the Dragon myth to explore themes of cooperative problem solving and resource sharing.  A giant 35 foot dragon puppet is brought to life by Staten Islanders of all ages.

  1. The Dragon from the hidden hills of Staten Island grows parched from the fire that she breaths. She relies on the watering hole in Tompkinsville Park to quench her thirst. But the villagers fear the Dragon and rely on the water for their own needs. Can George, an ordinary human being, help them resolve their differences and save the dragon? Can they share their natural resources? Find out in this giant dragon puppet show if St George and the Dragon will work it out!

  2. Expect to see not only one dragon, but an entire parade of them in which you can participate as your favorite dragon! Join flower fairies, marching bands, a dragon made entirely of recycled goods, and a community built giant dragon as they march through and around the park. Come dressed as a dragon or flower fairy and celebrate our neighborhood.
