This is a non-verbal explanation of the atmosphere, movements, rhythms and sounds of four contrasting areas of the natural world. Mimika Theatre's remarkable visual effects and transformations are set inside a beautiful calico dome. The sun rises over a buzzing DESERT, a chick hatches—the Eagle leaves the nest in search of food. The journey begins. The RAINFOREST where Apes, butterflies, spiders and birds are all drawn to a clutch of eggs on the riverbank. The Crocodile is always on guard. SEA—a crowded kaleidoscope of constant movement, the large and small; the speedy and slow; the beautiful and ugly; the familiar and bizarre. ANTARCTIC where snow, wind, cold and ice provide a harsh but beautiful background for the setting sun at journey’s end.
