Venture to the North Pole and save the planet!

Under the sweeping impact of global warming, the arctic glaciers are melting and the once peaceful “home sweet home” of the polar bear is in dire crisis: soon, there will be no home to return to!

Back in 2015, the 12 zodiac animals made their first visit to the North Pole to rescue a baby polar bear, bringing audiences young and old an unforgettable tale of love and courage. Now the North Pole is in trouble again, and the 12 zodiac animals must bravely return north on a perilous and heart-warming adventure.

Professional dancers from Hong Kong Dance Company team up with young talents from the Children’s and Youth Troupes, as well as special guest Anthony Ho, to transform themselves into little animals. Through exquisite dancing and uproarious humour, these small creatures project their grace into the hearts of all who witness their journey. In the sweltering summer heat, leave behind the high-rises and city streets and join their brave mission to protect our planet, taking in the glories of nature from the ice-cold glaciers.
