Darwin the Dinosaur - Corbian Visual Arts and Dance

Friday, October 16, 2009, 7 p.m.

Darwin the DinosaurThe story begins with Professor Henslow, a famous scientist with magic powers who is in the process of bringing to life his newest creation and dinosaur friend, Darwin.  The story tells of Darwin’s experiences as he explores his new world, encountering many different types of creatures—Verla, the gangly ostrich; Peche, the beautiful fish; and Brutus, the menacing red dinosaur. In the end when Brutus threatens Professor Henslow, Darwin is forced to make a decision. A decision that will alter his life forever, an ultimately, lead him to discover the true meaning of love.

Corbian Visual Arts and Dance combines the telling of a heart-rendering story with a truly unique and innovative theater experience where electroluminescent crayon-like creatures light up the stage in a blackout setting. A performance that the family will talk about long after the show ends!
