Electroluminescent crayon-like creatures light up the stage in a blackout setting. Described as children’s ballet or opera, this theater experience crosses dance, song and light show with a sort-of-full-body puppetry. The story begins with Professor Henslow, a famous scientist with magic powers who brings to life his newest creation and dinosaur friend, Darwin.The tale tells of Darwin’s experiences as he explores his new world, encountering different creatures: Verla, the gangly ostrich; Peche, the beautiful fish; and Brutus, the menacing red dinosaur. When Brutus threatens the professor, Darwin makes a decision that alters his life forever and leads him to discover the true meaning of love.
