Sometimes, no words are needed to speak a language. And when it comes to MUMMENSCHANZ, that language is love.
After more than forty years of touring the world, this one-of-a-kind theater performance is coming back to Switzerland. After having missed it in 2012, I am so happy that this October, the legendary show is going to take over the stage at MAAG Halle in Zürich!
From what I gather, there is a slinky tube, a clay face and a giant hand. These adorable creatures manipulate shadow and light to find their way into the audience’s hearts. No wonder everyone who has ever seen this witty show loved it! Reviewers and spectators the world over are praising the experience that is MUMMENSCHANZ with adjectives such as “magical” or “enchanting”.
I find it amazing that their low-key concept which has captivated audiences as early as 1972 is still popular today. Meanwhile, the world has grown used to fancy special effects, but this Swiss mime troupe has stayed true to their roots. The latest act is called 40 years – a medley of all the highlights from four decades.
I am truly looking forward to a night of heartfelt laughter! You?
