Slanted Theatre presents Dragon Tales, a captivating festival of new Asian-Australian works presented during the Lunar New Year. Spread over two magical nights on Monday, February 12, and Tuesday, February 13, this festival promises a unique blend of stories that traverse family ties, delve into the depths of the mafia, and confront the challenges of the entertainment industry. 

Presented by Slanted Theatre in partnership with National Theatre of Parramatta’s True West Program, Dragon Tales is a celebration of diverse voices and rich cultural narratives. Experience the vibrancy of Asian-Australian storytelling as we bring together tales that span generations and life experiences.

Slanted Theatre has been a driving force in supporting Asian artists, fostering creativity, and breaking barriers in the theatre landscape. With over 120 artists involved in our productions over three years, Dragon Tales is a testament to our commitment to building a community where every voice is heard.
