Barbican Centre, London, UK
ROOMAN is a new visual-performance by Fleur Elise Noble, a rich tapestry of puppetry, projection, drawing, dance and sound installation. Like a low-tech hologram, or a high-fi paper pop-up book, ROOMAN takes the audience on a journey inside worlds of animated universes as they unfold upon a giant 3-dimensional paper set.
ROOMAN is a story of romance, fantasy and the pursuit of happiness. A story that we can all, in some way, relate to. A girl meets a kangaroo man in her dreams and falls in love. Obsessed by his reality, and the idea of becoming a part of it, she takes desperate measures to spend more time with him. Her obsession leads her into the darkest depths of the human psyche. 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.

ROOMAN in PORT ADELAIDE
Presented by Insite Arts and Vitalstatisix
A girl meets a half-man-half-kangaroo in her dreams, and falls in love. Obsessed by his reality, and the idea of becoming a part of it, she takes desperate measures to spend more time with him. This obsession leads her into the darkest depths of the human psyche.
After sell-out shows in Melbourne, Slovenia and The Netherlands, South Australian artist Fleur Elise Noble returns to her home-town with her exquisitely textural visual performance that beautifully weaves puppetry, projection, drawing and dance. Like a low-tech hologram or a high-tech paper pop-up book, ROOMAN transports us inside worlds of animated universes as they unfold upon a giant, three-dimensional paper set.
Heart-warming and heart-breaking, ROOMAN is a visual-musical extravaganza about following your dreams, waking up, and living.
Port Adelaide locals, you will recognise your hometown in this fable.
“Noble and her team bear comparison to the British company 1927, crafting – from a bespoke, noir-like surrealism – a dark, whimsical style of visual theatre that dominates the imagination. Rooman is a must for anyone interested in the possibilities of cinema in theatrical space, and will fire the imagination of older children and adults alike.” The Sydney Morning Herald
