Each student in Running Dog has a say, an artistic voice, whether they build platforms, hang lights, mix sounds, or create characters. Running Dog is committed to listening to that voice, stretching its range, clarifying its timbre, amplifying it, and transmitting it to the world. The answer is Yes. Some leave Running Dog for the world of professional entertainment. Some become entrepreneurs, accountants, scientists. But no one leaves without a strong experience: the coming together for months of fun, intense, cooperative activity, all geared toward bring new tears to a couple thousand people a year. A million laughs, a million sobs. That’s our ritual.
