  The University of Hawai‘i Presents
LOON by WONDERHEADS 

University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa  •  Orvis Auditorium 
February 7, 2017 • 7:30pm 

Acclaimed physical theatre company and mask imagineers the WONDERHEADS bring you a love story that whisks a man to the moon and back! Francis, a lonely janitor who is plagued by isolation and tickled by whispers of childhood imagination, has hit rock bottom and discovers that he has nowhere to go . . . but up. And up. And up! But will plucking the moon from the sky bring him the love he is searching for?
 

“Genius both in concept and execution,” LOON is performed in full-face mask, a form so magical audiences of all ages marvel in childlike delight (Calgary Sun). Wordless and whimsical, it has been described by audiences as watching a living cartoon, or live-action Pixar. In their distinct style of visual storytelling, with rich soundscapes, fantastical puppetry, timeless slapstick and deft physical performance, the WONDERHEADS ignite the hearts and imaginations of every audience member.


Winner of four Critics’ Choice Awards, three Best of Fest Awards, and described by the CBC as “pure magic,” LOON has been delighting audiences since 2011. A beautifully surprising mix of physical theatre, comedy and pathos, LOON is a love story the likes of which you’ve never seen.
