In Absentia - a journey through the world of dementia.

Using life-size puppets and an array of staging devices Christchurch Theatre Company, Tablo, present a hauntingly evocative work, In Absentia.

An intimate theatre show presenting a mesmerizing glimpse into the world of dementia, through a mother and son’s journey.
This is not children's puppetry but dramatic, subtly nuanced performance along the lines of contemporary European and North American puppet theatre.

Tablo's two Creative Directors and Performers, Simon van der Sluijs and John Cohen-Du Four, originally hail from The Netherlands and the United States.

In Absentia premiered at the Dunedin Fringe Festival, where it was nominated for Best Theatre, Best Production Design and Best of Fringe, and won Best Production Design for being, in the words of the judging panel: “…a work by master puppeteers.”
