Five representatives from Dragone spoke at a panel entitled “Dragone: The Creative Process” at LDI (Live Design International) on November 19, 2022. The panel included Chief Operating Officer Anna Robb, Senior Creative Directors Damien Long and Filippo Ferraresi, Creative Associate and veteran performer Wayne Wilson, and Communications Manager Michael Howell. The panel was completely full and was the first of many conversations focused on sharing and examining Dragone’s signature creative process that was developed over decades of creations by founder and Artistic Director Franco Dragone.
For the first time, the evolution of a Dragone creation was discussed and members of the live entertainment community had the opportunity to interface directly with Dragone company and creative leadership about what makes Dragone Creations so unique. Topics ranged from Dragone’s theories and inspirations stemming directly from Franco to the specific phases of a project as it becomes a reality. The panelists accented the conversation with anecdotes from their combined decades of experience both with Dragone and in the larger live show industry.
Perhaps best known for reinventing a genre of spectacle theatre that forever changed the face of live entertainment around the world (A New Day, Le Rêve, House of Dancing Water, La Perle, etc.), Dragone’s creations play to sold-out houses and receive standing ovations each and every night. Creating shows of all shapes across continents, Dragone continues to humbly embrace local cultures to entertain and wow global audiences. Its vast portfolio includes permanent shows in tailor made spaces, and other signature experiences.
