Downstage & Red Leap Theatre (Akl)
A tale of light, love and courage, as two worlds join through the mind of one man.
Henry is a writer and a recluse. When his heroine Lumina bursts from her papery world into his, fantasy blurs with reality and both their lives are changed forever. Lumina is on a quest to protect her light from a dark and threatening force. Is this Henry’s chance to find the courage he needs to re-connect with the outside world?
Breath-taking imagery and movement combine with exquisite puppetry for a fantastical storytelling experience. Red Leap’s signature flair has won multiple awards and helped them take their brand of New Zealand theatre to the world.
In 2010 their New Zealand International Arts Festival show The Arrival won six Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards including Best Production and Most Original Production.
Developed through Auckland Arts Festival's Watch This Space Programme.
