To ensure good harvests in the future, and to cleanse the land after recent events, the Dragon must be ‘pacified.’

In addition to the dance performance offering an interpretation, a commissioned ceramic jar by Jacob Foran will be buried, along with joss paper burning.

The project will take place in the northwest corner of Hamlin Park, off of NE 166 St and 15th Ave NE in Shoreline 98155.

Financial support was provided through a grant from 4culture.
