Playful, inventive, compelling — Swiss-based theater troupe Mummenschanz has been thrilling audiences for 45 years with their unparalleled use of shadow, light, masks and objects. “Witty madness…Dazzling and delightful” (New York Times). Visually stunning, they transcend cultural barriers and spark the imagination with acrobatics, deft satire and timeless insights into the human condition.!
Formed in Paris in 1972 by founding members Andres Bossard, Floriana Frassetto and Bernie Schürch, MUMMENSCHANZ paved the way for nonverbal theater and multiple new genres. Since then, the group has established its legacy with tireless touring across five continents over four decades by the original artists (Frassetto is still a main cast member), as well as current featured players, Philipp Egli, Pietro Montandon and Raffaella Mattioli, and technical directors Jan Maria Lukas / Dino de Maio.
Seen by millions in more than 60 countries, MUMMENSCHANZ humorously communicates timeless truths and insights on the human condition using a purely nonverbal universal "language." The group creates a playful and uniquely memorable theater experience through an inventive use of shadow and light and creative manipulation of sculptural, expressive masks. The visually stunning spectacle is a form of family-friendly entertainment that sparks the imagination, transcends cultural barriers and dazzles audiences and generations of fans around the world.
