The Flying Bedroom in Real Life - Heather Dyer

Elinor had only been a figment of my imagination until Little Light brought her to life in their digital dance show, The Flying Bedroom. It was surreal seeing Elinor played by Angharad Jones, speaking the lines I’d written for her – and new lines, too. Sometimes, when people read a book, then see a film where the characters aren’t quite as they imagined them, they feel dismayed. But Angharad’s acting was so convincing and expressive, there was no doubt in my mind that this was the real Elinor – on stage, at least.
