The new kung fu musical Dragon Spring Phoenix Rise will make its world premiere at The Shed as a commission for the groundbreaking new venue's inaugural season, with performances set to begin June 22 ahead of a June 27 opening. The musical, co-conceived by Kung Fu Panda screenwriters Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, features a score with original tunes by composer, musician, and producer The Haxan Cloak, as well as new arrangements of songs by pop star Sia.

“Dragon Spring Phoenix Rise is a modern fable of transformation—two teenagers finding the courage and strength to overcome the forces of greed and power,” said Alex Poots, artistic director and CEO of The Shed. “These are themes that run deep in Sia's songs, brought magically to life by Chen Shi-Zheng, our creative team, and an incredible cast.”
