WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Directed by Australia's Peter Wilson, director of the Sydney Olympics Opening Ceremony, this beautifully enchanting performance blends traditional Chinese art, music and culture with contemporary puppetry, theater and animation. Raised by the colorful and lively twelve Chinese zodiac animals, the young Dragon Child enjoys a harmonious and peaceful existence until pollution and diminishing natural resources disrupt her life. Through her eyes and the eyes of her friends, this optimistic story of growth, survival and courage explores the challenges our world faces today and their impact on our children, our hope and our future.
