WINNER – Best Set Design & Best Lighting Design, Wellington Theatre Awards 2016
Dust Pilgrim is an intimate yet epic tale of a young woman’s fight for freedom in a world where dreams and premonitions are as real as the wind.Inspired by the limitless imaginings of magic realism and told in Red Leap’s trademark physical and visceral style.
Panuelo is trapped in a life built on dust and shifting sands, held tight in the fist of her tyrannical mother. On uncovering the restless bones of a secret long buried, Panuelo makes a daring bid for freedom and runs out into the vast desert, encountering a world of tricksters, prophets, boundaries and borders. But things are never as they seem. Panuelo must stop running and face up to her mother to truly set herself free.
" I am in a euphoric trance of beauty, light and theatrical magic. I love Red Leap, their work is inspirational, odd, moving, challenging and full of inventive curiosity. I could watch this for hours." - Holly Shanahan,Theatreview
