The work begins with dancers representing the different elements coming together to form the planet earth: Meteors, Air, Planets, Water, Earth and Fire. The figures representing Earth wear masks of reptile faces. While the Fire figures "burst" around the stage like sparks, the Earth figures' movements indicate that they are gaining control of the Fire. At the end of Scene One, the flames die down and the Earth figures show the other side of their masks to reveal the Face of Man.
