Long ago, the Great Spirit Mata Nui descended from the heavens to an island paradise, bringing with him the islanders known as the Matoran. As they were without purpose from the start, the Great Spirit united them with three virtues: unity, duty and destiny. In gratitude of these gifts, the Matoran named their island in his honor. Yet their peace and harmony didn’t last, as Mata Nui’s envious brother, Makuta, betrayed him by casting a spell over the Great Spirit, causing him to fall into a deep slumber. With his brother struck down, Makuta had free rein to spread his evil across the island. Meanwhile, far to the south, in the land of Kanto, a young boy left home to begin a great quest for personal fame and glory, as well as an intensive hands-on study in ethology, zoology, and game management. He encountered, battled and befriended many fantastical creatures that are unknown in our world but that he called Pokemon. Our show will retell these two legends through music, taking the listener on a sonic journey that will be at times terrifying, awe-inspiring, and blissful. We will also shed light on the surprising intersectionality of these two stories, which was previously unknown to chroniclers familiar with each.
