ILLUMINA: A Musical Making Waves
Fort Lauderdale, Floria Junior Session Two (2014)
All Aboard the Illumina, the first ever fully automated luxury cruise! Boasting screens on every wall, high-speed synchronization technology and a crew of enthusiastic cyborgs, the Illumina offers a futuristic experience unlike any other. Cruise-goers of all ages jump at the chance to be part of a new era. Some families, like the Cliffs, are blown away by the gadgets on the ship, while other families, like the wealthy Hollands, are not so impressed. Amidst a cast of colorful characters, ranging from two nostalgic old ladies, to a computer hacker, to a power-hungry robo-parrot, the cruisers of the Illumina come face to face with the questions of our future, namely: how do we live with technology and how do we survive without it?
