In the early 1970s, the two Swiss artists Andreas Bosshard and Bernie Schürch met the American Floriana Frassetto in Rome. Trained in the art of pantomime, all three felt an irrepressible desire to try something new. The trio gave themselves the name Mummenschanz and told stories without words, just with their moving bodies. With the help of masks and objects, the trio created bizarre characters and amazing situations on stage. Mummenschanz was not only enthusiastically celebrated throughout Europe, but also on Broadway. Over the decades, the troupe has exchanged its members, but co-founder Frassetto is still active and has put together and staged a program for their 50th anniversary. Mummenschanz is a poetic journey into the world of silence suitable for families with children from age 6.
