you & me
MUMMENSCHANZ pioneered a form of visual theatre that has dazzled audiences around the globe for more than forty-five years. By creating a playful yet compelling experience through the inventive use of shadow, light, and creative manipulation of objects, the Swiss-based troupe offers timeless insight on the human condition. The result is a visually stunning spectacle that transcends cultural barriers and sparks the imagination.
The company’s new creation, you & me, brings to life the large-scale masks audiences have grown to love, plus a revival of a tradition of acrobatics. The show will feature some of the classic sketches that have stood the test of time, and will focus on the love and mutual joy the audiences and the performers experience.
“MUMMENSCHANZ succeeds brilliantly because of its originality, exceptional ingenuity, sense of surprise, and deft satirical touches,” writes a reviewer for the San Francisco Chronicle.
“The sound is the audience that laughs, that sighs, that whispers, that makes comments. It’s like a cartoon coming alive in front of you,” says MUMMENSCHANZ founder Floriana Frassetto. “you & me is the intimacy we go into. I give you my idea, and you play with my idea, and you make it your idea.”
