Welcome to the surreal world of the Pianist and the Puppet. Packed full of gags, hilarious moments and surprises, you’ll be on the edge of your seat and drawn into the epic melodramatic world of our two protagonists.

Performed with buckets of charm by New Zealand’s White Face Crew, La Vie Dans Une Marionette brings together physical theatre, clowning, dance and music composed by Yann Tiersen (Amélie) in the tale of a lonely pianist and the puppet he buys to keep himself company.

Inspired by the European traditions of clowning and commedia dell’arte, with a uniquely New Zealand flavour, La Vie Dans Une Marionette showcases camaraderie through physical comedy, smooth moves, and spontaneous hilarity.

This heartwarming story will have you falling off your seat with laughter – it’s fun for the whole family, from 8 – 80!
