Like an immersive pop-up book or graphic novel coming to life, ROOMAN is a rich tapestry of puppetry, projection, animation, dance, music and sound.
A young woman only finds relief from the surroundings of her monotonous, monochrome existence when she meets a kangaroo man in her dreams. Obsessed by his colourful, wondrous and limitless universe, she pursues a dangerous path to spend more time with him. Soon she must make a choice: to give up or to wake up.
With the atmosphere of fantastical film noir, this innovative show matches wordless performance with a multidimensional paper set, to tell a heart-warming story about falling in love with a fantasy. From Australia, artist Fleur Elise Noble is the maker of all things visual and has spent seven years creating the universe of Rooman
, who she originally encountered in her own dreams.
