  The Wider Earth is a new visual theatre work that reimagines the story of Charles Darwin’s voyage on the HMS Beagle. A coming-of-age story about science, faith and how a doubting young man asked a question of Mother Nature and found the answer to everything. For ages 12 +, 8 actors use a suite of over 30 puppets, an original score by ARIA-award winning singer/songwriter Lior and Tony Buchen plus animated illustrations, to bring to life the extraordinary vistas encountered by the ship’s crew. This magical journey visits the heights of the Andes, the depths of the Amazon rainforest, the storms of Tierra del Fuego, the wondrous Galapagos Islands and the untouched Australian coastline.
