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.

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.

Extraordinary artist Fleur Elise Noble presents an exquisitely textural visual performance that beautifully weaves puppetry, projection, drawing and dance.

Heartwarming, heartbreaking, and a story that we can all, in some way, relate to, ROOMAN is a visual-musical extravaganza about following your dreams, waking up, and living.
