The WonderHeads: LOON

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

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! But will plucking the moon from the sky bring him the love he is searching for?

LOON is performed in full-face mask, a form so magical you will forget your age and marvel in childlike delight. Wordless and whimsical, it has been described by audiences as watching a living cartoon, or live-action Pixar.

Winner of four Critics’ Choice Awards, three Best of Fest Awards, and described by the CBC as “Pure magic”, LOON is a beautifully surprising mix of physical theatre, comedy and pathos—a love story the likes of which you’ve never seen.
