The witty ideas of the group, founded in Paris in 1972 by Andres Bossard, Floriana Frassetto and Bernie Schürch, have been carrying away audiences all over the world. So much so that MUMMENSCHANZ have come to mean far more than a name. The work of the group has become a form of art which has put its mark on the Mime-Masque Theater, and impressed few generations of audiences. Showgoers of all ages and culture who, led into the creative work of MUMMENSCHANZ, witness weired timeless creatures and incredible colourful forms compete to enchant them.
Today MUMMENSCHANZ denotes far more than a name. MUMMENSCHANZ has become a myth – a myth which both lives and keeps cloaked in mystery. MUMMENSCHANZ at once solemnly tackles everyday’s problems and make us laugh of an unbroken laugh. Tomorrow is right now – so, follow the Musicians of Silence, the Musiciens du silence, the Virtuosen der Stille, on the company website, and …”Enjoy the Show!”
