ROOMAN is a very real story about falling in love with a fantasy. It’s about a girl who meets a half-man-half-kangaroo in her dreams, and falls desperately in love. ROOMAN is a heart- warming, heart-breaking, visual-musical extravaganza about following your dreams, and seeing what kind of a journey that can take you on.

ROOMAN is a new visual-performance by Fleur Elise Noble. It’s a rich tapestry of puppetry, projection, drawing, dance and live music. Like a low-tech hologram, or a high-tech 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. A world sung into being by the beautiful young Jamaican-Canadian singer, Sarah Reid.
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.
