    I took my kids to the performance here at the ACC ( Air Canada Centre).
    They loved it and it was really well done, in the style of "walking with dinosaurs".
    Very acrobatic.
    A little cheesy at times but hey, it's all in good fun.

    He trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle !

    To make this even more OT

    Living theatre to perform in China
    2013-01-15 16:41:00

    China Yurun Food Group and Dream Works SKG of the US signed a strategic cooperation agreement in Nanjing on the morning of Jan 14.

    The two sides will form a strategic cooperative partnership on the culture and entertainment industry, and be the first to introduce the world-class family entertainment living theatre How to Train Your Dragon to China.

    How to Train Your Dragon was created by Dream Works, co-produced by the US company and the Australian firm Global Creatures. The living theatre has been performed in Australia, New Zealand, the US and Canada in 2012.

    It is the first time that senior executives of Dream Works collectively visited Jiangsu. Dream Works joined by the top creative talents and management team is one of the top 10 entertainment companies of the US with wide businesses including film processing, video game, and television program production and distribution, which is the only company standing at par with the Walt Disney Company. It has produced some classic cartoons including Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda.

    Dream Works’ coming will meet the needs of Chinese culture to go global and seek more conversation with the world. It will be of great importance in developing the culture and entertainment industry of Nanjing, even of China.
    I wonder how well this show will translate to Chinese...
