What if, one night You found yourself in charge of the light in the moon … The moon’s caretaker? And what if, that same night, The moon’s light bulb burned out? What would you do? This is the beginning of one very strange night … A night called LaLaLuna LaLaLuna LaLaLuna is the newest solo theatrical production from one of today’s masters of physical theatre, Wolfe Bowart. A surreal tale of the moon’s caretaker as he struggles to re-light the darkened moon, LaLaLuna is circus, theatre and film woven together with a poetic and comic physical language all its own. Take a journey to the place where gravity isn’t always on its best behaviour. Float in a comic and visually stunning dreamscape as the artistic director of The Shneedles casts his whimsical eye on the moon in LaLaLuna. The Shneedles As artistic director and performer with The Shneedles (www.shneedles.com), Bowart and fellow Shneedle Bill Robison have won critical acclaim in Japan, Singapore, Germany, Austria, Spain, Iceland and the U.S. The Shneedles’ recent tours of Australia have seen them earn Best of the Fest raves from critics and audiences alike at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and a sold-out season at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre.
