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 White Face Crew co-creators Jarod Rawiri (Shortland Street), Justin Haiu and Tama Jarman, La Vie Dans Une Marionette bring together physical theatre, clowning, dance and live music, in a tale of a lonely pianist and the puppet he buys to keep him company.
Inspired by the European traditions of clowning and commedia dell’arte, and with a uniquely New Zealand flavour, La Vie Dans Une Marionette showcases White Face Crew’s camaraderie through physical comedy, smooth moves, and spontaneous hilarity.
