ROOMAN is a heart-warming, heart-breaking, visual-musical extravaganza by Fleur Elise Noble.
Back in 2011, we presented sell-out performances of Fleur’s stunning first work, 2D Life of Her. Now enjoy her new work with its rich tapestry of puppetry, projection, drawing, dance and music. Like a low-tech hologram, or a hi-fi paper pop-up book, ROOMAN takes the audience on a journey inside worlds of animated universes as they unfold upon a giant three-dimensional paper set.
It’s a story of romance and fantasy and the pursuit of happiness. A young woman is bored witless by her day job, but at night she meets a kangaroo man in her dreams and falls head over heels in love. Obsessed by the idea of becoming a part of his curious world, she takes desperate measures to spend more time with him.
ROOMAN is about following your dreams and seeing what kind of a journey that can take you on. But more importantly, it’s about waking up and living.
