Somewhere in the northern seas lies the small island nation of Sólset. Once a thriving metropolis, a decades-long drought has plagued the community and now only a hopeful few remain. From the multi-award-winning team behind It’s Dark Outside, The Irresistible, New Owner and Alvin Sputnik comes a deeply romantic visual extravaganza that will reignite your love of humanity.
Perth theatre-makers The Last Great Hunt combine cinematic mastery and theatrical magic to tell interwoven stories of love in a world that’s falling apart as they perform a faux foreign film live. Lé Nør [the rain] invites you to witness both the onscreen story and the behind-the-scenes action in a nostalgic celebration of everything worth fighting for.
