Dragon Matrix (October 2016)

Dragon Matrix



In what was the first ever event in Scotland to combine Augmented Reality technology with live theatre, DragonQuest was a spectacular and stunning show which attracted a staggering 5,000 visitors.

We lit up 20 Autumnal evenings with 3D fairies, trolls, goblins, hovering flies and, of course, the breath-taking dragon itself, and wowed our audiences with some truly mesmerising live theatre.

2016 sees the event take some brilliant new twists and turns, and we can’t wait to welcome you to Dragon Matrix.

Put simply, we’re once again promising you high-tech adventures in the woods, but this time it will be brighter (but not that bright!), bolder and more daring.

This amazing Augmented Reality performance will lead you to a parallel universe where talking, magical creatures will help you find the six missing dragon stones. It’s still a quest, but like a matrix, it’s also a computer generated dream world. At Dragon Matrix, you’d be wise to avoid the path of spiders and resist the temptation to talk to the trolls.

As we work on the intricacies of this fantastical show, be sure of one thing. A high-tech world in the woods awaits…

Dragon Matrix will take place from 5-31 October 2016. The Dragon Matrix app will be released in app stores shortly before the event.

DragonQuest evolved from an original idea by Symon Macintyre, Vision Mechanics’ Artistic Director.
