I am happy to be associated with the return of Mummenschanz, which is coming back to New York next month. For more than thirty years the company has created an original and captivating universe of whimsy, wonder, and ingenuity that delights both young and old. Mummenschanz who revolutionized mime art with a new vocabulary of body language, are back with a new show that keeps the best and most significant acts of previous shows. It’s the perfect way to introduce your kids to the world of pantomime, which they might not have experienced before.
The Mummenschanz Mask Theater was founded in 1972. In 1973, Mummenschanz toured the USA, Canada, and South America, and later enjoyed a three year run on Broadway 77-79). They are known for having appeared as special guest stars on the last episode of the first season of The Muppet Show ,which taped in November 1976. They also appeared on 3-2-1 Contact in the 1980s and Northern Exposure in the 1990s. The troupe won the prestigious Rose d’or for their TV production La Pomme in 1980.
Mummenschanz creates a playful and uniquely memorable experience through an inventive use of forms, shadow and light and creative manipulation of sculptural, expressive masks.
Mummenschanz is playing at the Skirball Center at NYU from Mon, Dec 20, 2010 – Sat, Jan 8, 2011.
