“My iPad-addicted 9-year-old daughter . . . smiled, eyes wide, throughout MUMMENSCHANZ. Her first words upon leaving the theater? ‘I have to text Mom to tell her about this!’” — The New York Times
Founded in Paris in 1972, MUMMENSCHANZ forever changed the world of mime-masque theatre. In the wordless universe of MUMMENSCHANZ, the ordinary becomes extraordinary when common materials, everyday objects (like toilet paper), and colorful abstract shapes and forms like the famous Clay Masks, Slinky Man, and Giant Hands spring to life. Audiences of all ages and from around the world have marveled at MUMMESCHANZ’s larger-than-life playful objects, evoking wonder from children and offering us all insight into our human condition.
