A dramatic recreation of how many theater historians believe theater arose, as a reenactment of the hunt. To break up the humdrum of life in their camp, tribal elders give four hunters the task, of showing the whole clan how they killed a giant bear. Since these seasoned, burly hunters have no idea of how to "play" the hunt, they invent, before our eyes the theater. They discover acting, directing, costuming and props. It is a magical moment for actors and audiences as the hunt is brought to life and the great bear is "slain" again.
