Since the beginning of time, people have gazed into the polar skies, spellbound by dancing beams of colour... the northern lights. Though scientists have advanced many theories to explain the aurora borealis, and aboriginal people around the northern pole have passed down their beliefs through the centuries, mysteries still linger. As the auroral curtains shimmer throughout this production, we experience a visual panorama of animated legends, international space launches, and indigenous people and scientists offering their perceptions of the wondrous northern lights.
