Pandora 2154 - 2012

Creative Academy original performance for January 2012.

Based on the James Cameron film Avatar.

Jake Sully and his twin are attacked. His twin, Tom, is murdered and Jake left with permanent damage to his spine.  In 2154, the RDA Corporation is mining a valuable mineral called unobtanium on Pandora, a lush, Earth-like habitable moon with an atmosphere poisonous to humans in the Alpha Centauri star system. Pandora is inhabited by the Na'vi, sapient humanoids who live in harmony with nature and worship a goddess called Eywa.

To learn about the Na'vi and Pandora's biosphere, scientists use Na'vi-human hybrid bodies called avatars that are operated via mental link by genetically matched humans. Jake Sully, former marine, replaces James, a scientist trained as an avatar operator after he is murdered. Dr. Grace Augustine head of the Avatar Program, considers Sully an inadequate replacement and assigns him as a bodyguard. A female Na'vi, stumbles upon Jake and reluctantly rescues him from Pandora's wildlife. Seeing portents from Eywa, she takes him to her clan's dwelling, Hometree; there, Jake meets clan chief Eytukan. Neytiri's mother Mo'at, the clan's spiritual leader, orders her daughter to teach the "warrior dreamwalker" their ways.
