Wordless, whimsical nonsense spectacle
New York Times
The ordinary becomes extraordinary when colorful abstract shapes and forms spring to life in their latest spectacle You & Me, for audiences of all ages.
For over four decades, the Swiss performance troupe Mummenschanz has inspired audiences around the world with their groundbreaking non-verbal theater 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.
"You & Me" was created by the Mummenschanz founding member Floriana Frassetto.
