MUMMENSCHANZ @ BERGEN PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
Bergen Performing Arts Center located at 30 North Van Brunt Street in Englewood, New Jersey presents Mummenschanz, Friday, January 30th 2015 at 8 PM. Purchase tickets to see the pioneering performers at www.ticketmaster.com or Box Office at 201.227.1030.
Since its three year run on Broadway, the Swiss theater troupe Mummenschanz has pioneered a new form of visual theater that has since spawned multiple new genres reclaiming their legacy. Formed by founding members Andres Bossard, Floriana Frassetto and Bernie Schürch, MUMMENSCHANZ has since inspired generations of show-goers across five continents over four decades. The 'stories' told are unique in that they have no sound or music; the language of Mummenschanz is universal.
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.
By creating a playful yet compelling experience through the inventive use of shadow, light, and creative manipulation of objects, MUMMENSCHANZ offers timeless insight on the human condition. The result is a visually stunning spectacle that transcends cultural barriers and sparks the imagination.
