The adventures of Darwin the Dinosaur

Electroluminescent crayon-like creatures light up the night in a heart-rending tale of a scientist and his creation

Electroluminescent crayon-like creatures light up the night in a heart-rending tale of a scientist and his creation.

Truly unique and visually dazzling, Corbian Visual Arts and Dance has been universally praised for their cutting edge blend of puppetry, technology, and dance with The Adventures of Darwin the Dinosaur.

You can judge for yourself when the Tidemark Theatre in Campbell River presents Darwin on Friday, March 18 at 7 p.m. It may be hard to imaging just what you will see on stage and thus the Tidemark is suggesting that you have a look at the video on their website at www.tidemarktheatre.com . You’ve never seen anything like this before.

The story begins with Professor Henslow, a famous scientist who has magic powers. We find him in his workshop, putting his latest creation, Darwin, together piece by piece. With a wave of Henslow’s magic wand, Darwin is brought to life. Darwin is much more than a pet-he is a dinosaur, a wild and primitive creature. Though he learns to take his first steps from his creator, Darwin’s animal instincts eventually take over and he succumbs to his predatory nature.

Realizing that he is suddenly in danger, Professor Henslow cleverly responds by making Darwin a heart, thereby creating in Darwin compassion for other beings. Darwin is transformed and a lasting bond develops between creator and beast.

Tickets are $20 Adults, $15 Tidemark Members, $10 Students, $5 eyeGo (grades 9-12) and are available at the Tidemark Ticket Centre 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday or Charge-by-Phone at 287-PINK (7465) or 1-800-994-0555. Tickets are also available online at www.tidemarktheatre.com
