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.
