World Premiere.

Following the international success of The Arrival New Zealand’s Red Leap Theatre returns with their magical new work, Paper Sky – A love story. Henry lives alone. He reads poetry. He writes poems. Then he meets Lumina, who captures his thoughts like the pages of a book.

Henry lives alone. He reads poetry. He writes poems and tucks them into different places, his pockets, between books, under furniture. Henry has been on a few dates but they never seem to work out. Then he meets Lumina and he can’t quite believe her. How she captures his thoughts like the pages of a book, how she wanders in his mind like letters on the wind.

Love illuminates. It makes us bold. It makes us take risks.

Performed by an ensemble cast under the direction of Kate Parker and Julie Nolan, Paper Sky incorporates striking visual imagery and physicality to unfold a love story as intimate as the space between two people and as epic as the sky.

Praised as a highlight of the Sydney and Hong Kong Arts Festivals, and described as exceptional and endlessly inventive by New Zealand’s theatre critics, The Arrival generated international enthusiasm for Red Leap’s work. Paper Sky’s intimate story will be staged in the iconic Mercury Theatre and the Glen Eden Playhouse Theatre. Early bookings are advised.

Commissioned by Auckland Arts Festival 2011.

Recommended for ages 8 and up.
