INSTINCT: A Musical Call To Action

Oskarshamn, Sweden Teen Workshop (2007)


After seeing a message in the sky from Mother Nature, animals take action and gather to save the earth from impending doom. They hear testimonies from a variety of species and humans are deemed responsible for the destruction of the earth. The solution to the problem? Wipe humans out “dino-style”, of course. But before such a plan can be enacted, a quiet observer throughout the court hearing, a unicorn, stands up as the embodiment of the one saving grace of the human race: “Dreams and Imagination.” Not only are humans capable of major destruction but also wondrous creation. In light of this, the animals decide to give humans a second chance.
