A tale of light, love and courage, as two worlds join through the mind of one man.
Henry is a writer and recluse. His heroine, Lumina, lives in a papery world. When Lumina takes refuge in Henry's room from a dark force threatening to destroy her, reality blurs with fiction and their lives are changed forever.
Breath-taking imagery and movement combine with exquisite puppetry technique for a fantastical storytelling experience. Red Leap's signature visual flair and endless inventive theatricality has won multiple awards and helped them take their brand of New Zealand theatre to the world.
