Welcome to the SINGING TREE. Della had a dream of a Singing Tree. Everyone of every age sat on the tree. The older people on the bottom, the young at the top. Together they sang in Harmony. On the Singing Tree you can learn about Dodoland and it’s history and goals and how it has been developed into immersive environment . You can be creative in writing songs ,playing music or creating an immersive environments. Here you can find your “Harmony Self”. Below are the words to the Dodoland Song which was used in the New York theatre Production of Dodoland. Also below that are videos featuring the immersive environments of Dodoland and Star Galaxy for the World in Topia and New Art City.
(Song by Jerry Shrair)
Open up your heart, Open up…Give the world your hand, Give the world….Open up your heart, give the world your hand
Raise your voice in song, and sing through out the land,For love is waiting there you’ll find, A garden that is yours and mine
So ride along were on our way to Dodoland, Don’t be long we are on our way to Dodoland
The birds will sing there……
