What is in the box?


This innovative and whimsical show has been developed by the New Zealand group White Face Crew, who first performed the show in 2013 and have since toured throughout New Zealand. La Vie Dans Une Marionette then premiered in Melbourne in 2017 and has now returned for 2018.

Fantastic Performances!


From the opening moment of our entrance to the Fairfax Studio, we were entertained as we were ushered in by one of the cast members - "The Moon" - cracking humorous jokes and creating lots of laughter as the audience found their allocated seats.

Entertaining and Interesting performance


Once the audience were all seated the show commenced beginning with the "Moon" calling down a member of the audience to explain the "audience rules" to us all. This was a cute little skit involving some miming of the yes and no-no's.

Explaining the do's and dont's for the audience!


The play was a quaint and quirky story about a lonely pianist who orders a new puppet to be delivered. But it seems the puppet has more life in him than expected!

The Moon


Without giving too much of the story away, the performance is filled with humour, miming, dancing and fantastic performances by the cast.



The three performers in the show are Tama Jarman as "The Pianist", Christopher Ofanoa as "The Puppet" and Jarod Rawiri as "The Moon" with the music of Yann Tiersen and Tama Waipara.

The show runs for 55 minutes with no interval and I would recommend La Vie Dans Une Marionette as a fantastic show for all ages of the family.
