The Drawing Project

This new project by Fleur Elise Noble (2 Dimensional Life of Her) follows the adventures of Rooman.
A young woman meets a half-man, half-kangaroo in her dreams and falls desperately in love. Closing herself off from the world, she lives only for sleep. She lives only for Rooman. As her desperate attempts to spend more time with Rooman stop working, she begins to have trouble sleeping. Soon, she becomes an insomniac, confined to a blurry, dishevelled, half-awake half-asleep world. In an attempt to find Rooman again, she employs a magician to recreate the reality she longs for. But his Roomen are mere costumes, and the world he creates is an unconvincing replica. So, in the hope of finding the man of her dreams, she sets off into the desert in search of Rooman….

The Drawing Project is about following your dreams, no matter how ridiculous or impossible that might seem.

First presented as a part of the 2011 World Theatre Festival’s Scratch program, The Drawing Project will continue its development, in collaboration with artists from around the world, culminating in the creation of a major new visual theatre production.

Conceived, directed and performed by Fleur Elise Noble.
Produced by Insite Arts.
