The Bench

A brand-new puppet play about life on a bench
Teater Refleksion’s new show will have its premiere in the spring of 2023

The production of ‘The Bench’ has been postponed a year and will premiere in the spring of 2023 instead of 2022.

Somewhere on or near this bench he has his whereabouts. We don’t know very much about him yet, and have no idea why he’s here.

The bench is so ordinary and yet so magical! Everywhere in towns, parks and gardens it stands – like an open invitation. Here people meet. Randomly or planned, in silence or for a chat together. Sometimes the bench’s visitors merely brush each other, and other times the meeting evolves.

Which dramas will be played out on this particular bench? Will you wonder about life’s big questions, and will there be tragedies, laughter and grimaces?

We look forward to exploring all of this and much more. In March you’ll be welcomed to our lively and imaginative puppet show full of shy, curious, peculiar and fateful bench encounters!




You can find all the show guidelines for various schools and institutions here.

Please pay special attention to the following guidelines for evening and weekend shows:

• All 2020 shows have been put on sale with a reduced number of seats in the halls.
• When buying more than one ticket at a time, you’ll get a matching number of adjacent seats. Accordingly, there’ll be a distance of less than one metre between the persons in the group. All groups will be given seat numbers upon arrival for the show.
• If you wish to keep one metre between you and your neighbours (from nose to nose), each ticket must be bought individually. For logistical reasons, we cannot guarantee that you’ll be seated next to each other in this case. You’ll be given a seat number upon arrival for the show.
