Singapore, 15 November 2019 – Explore the world’s inaugural travelling wildlife and exploration exhibition Living Worlds: An Animal Experience, coming first to Singapore from 16 November 2019 to 22 March 2020.

Created and produced by Kingsmen and made in collaboration with Discovery Inc. and Science Centre Singapore, this exhibition is the first-of-its-kind for the Animal Planet brand and is the perfect blend of smart meets fun offering a rare peek into the animal world in a fun and engaging way – through bespoke interactive multimedia and never-before-seen footage that unravel the wonders of wildlife and beauty of nature.

Beyond a showcase of the natural world, this exhibition explores the interdependent relationships between animals and the environments they inhabit, and aims to foster environmental consciousness by highlighting how human activity impacts nature.

Young and old can look forward to an excitingly unique experience featuring various immersive zones that will captivate everyone with striking storytelling in interesting bite-sized content whilst leveraging the latest technology for interactives as well as fun tactile play elements.

The 1,000 sqm exhibition spans across various immersive zones:

Into the Wild

Be ushered into the wild with a warm welcome from your favorite Animal Planet personalities – Bindi Irwin, Dave Salmoni and Forest Galente through an introductory projection show. Then be wowed by Animal Planet curated footage selection that will set the stage for the rest of the journey.

Living Worlds

Enter three distinct Living Worlds – Tropical Rain Forest, Coral Reef and Sea Ice – brought to life with Animal Planet’s videography, digital and tactile interactives, environmental projections, soundscapes and more.

  • Tropical Rain Forest: Traverse a special tree-top walk that will culminate in a surprising view to explore the rich biodiversity hidden within rain forests.
  • Coral Reef: Dive into the mysteries of the deep blue brought to life through an underwater corridor brought to life by large format projection. Guests will learn about the intricate coral ecosystem and how they interplay with deep-sea creatures.
  • Sea Ice: Explore a starkly beautiful wonderland, get frosty in the dynamic environment of the sea ice biological community and discover the role they play in regulating oceanic salinity. Additionally, guests will learn about polar bears’ amazing ability to adapt to the cold and more about the effects of global warming in the Arctic.

Reel X Real

Mr. Anthony Chong, Group Managing Director of Kingsmen Exhibits, said “The first of its kind in the world, Living Worlds: An Animal Planet Experience brings you on a unique journey alongside animals and the environments they live in. Tapping on our core expertise in telling stories and captivating audiences, we marry bespoke multimedia interactives with rarely-seen footage to narrate stories of the natural world, spurring curiosity for all ages and bringing viewers up-close and personal. The realization of this concept has been made possible through the partnership with the team from Discovery and Science Centre. We are delighted to be able to introduce the Living Worlds: An Animal Planet Experience as the world’s first traveling wildlife and exploration exhibition, and we intend to continue our drive in the creation of uniquely memorable experiences for a global audience.”

“Living Worlds: An Animal Planet Experience brings Animal Planet to life, allowing visitors to experience the joy and wonder of the animal kingdom through hands-on experiences and learning opportunities,” said Christine Wacker, Vice President of Location Based Entertainment at Discovery, Inc. “This experience will delight and educate consumers, while highlighting the natural beauty and indigenous species of Singapore, which is key to Discovery’s overall mission of powering people’s passions across the world.”

“We are pleased to collaborate with Discovery and Kingsmen to enhance the educational experience this exhibition brings. Partnering with leaders in their respective fields helps create a compelling immersive journey that takes guests from land to sea, celebrating wildlife in its natural world. Biology is the science of life and Living Worlds has been curated to ignite curiosity using nature as a tool to educate about the diversity of our planet and our relationship with nature,” said Associate Professor Lim Tit Meng, Chief Executive of Science Centre Singapore.

As the Official Projection Partner for the exhibition, Panasonic is pleased to showcase its state-of-the-art dome projection technology through this exhibition. The first single lens dome projection in Singapore and Southeast Asia – to reduce the extent of technical challenges associated with setting up multiple projects to provide a seamless end-user experience. Requiring only one projector and one lens, Panasonic’s fisheye lens technology combined with the high-quality 4K resolution projector overcomes challenges in the positioning and installation of projectors in the viewing space, and effectively brings down logistics costs while optimizing set-up time for the traveling exhibition. Visitors can also enjoy being fully immersed in the exhibition experience without worrying about blocking projection rays and shadows.
