Many years after the Big Change remade the world, The Luminary roams the land keeping the new world alive with old tales.

Adapted from Amanda Hall’s book “The Stolen Sun- a Story of Native Alaska”, The Luminary is the tale of a second chance. Angered when he sees humankind taking the fertile world for granted, the Raven takes away the sun, leaving the people to freeze. His daughter, Little Darkness, sets on a quest to bring back the light to the world.

"Luminary" is a one woman puppet show which takes the audience on a journey of light and shadow, found objects and layers of storytelling.
