About this show

The magic and wonder of Mummenschanz returns to North America for the first time since 2003 with a new program that showcases the incredible humor, versatility and pure imagination of the celebrated Swiss performance troupe. For nearly four decades, Mummenschanz has captivated audiences worldwide with its groundbreaking non-verbal theatre of movement and transformation. In the surreal, comic, wordless universe of Mummenschanz, everyday objects such as toilet paper, wires, tubes, and boxes spring to life to become fantastical characters, and abstract forms and ordinary shapes interact in surprising ways to reveal timeless truths about human connections and relationships. The troupe creates a playful and uniquely memorable experience through an inventive use of forms, shadow and light and creative manipulation of sculptural, expressive masks. The result is a visually stunning spectacle of family entertainment that sparks the imagination and transcends cultural barriers.
