MUMMENSCHANZ NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: December 21, 2010
Did He Like It?*
The magic and wonder of Mummenschanz returns to North America for the first time since 2003 with a new program that showcases the incredible humor, versatility and pure imagination of the celebrated Swiss performance troupe.
For nearly four decades, Mummenschanz has captivated audiences worldwide with its groundbreaking non-verbal theatre of movement and transformation. In the surreal, comic, wordless universe of Mummenschanz, everyday objects such as toilet paper, wires, tubes, and boxes spring to life to become fantastical characters, and abstract forms and ordinary shapes interact in surprising ways to reveal timeless truths about human connections and relationships. The troupe creates a playful and uniquely memorable experience through an inventive use of forms, shadow and light and creative manipulation of sculptural, expressive masks. The result is a visually stunning spectacle of family entertainment that sparks the imagination and transcends cultural barriers.
In a Sophisticated Showbiz World, Simple Mimes Can Still Hold Sway
*By JASON ZINOMAN
Published: December 22, 2010
"In 1977 The New York Times ran an article on Mummenschanz with the title “You’ve Never Seen Mimes Like This.” That was a long time ago. This granddaddy of wordless, whimsical nonsense spectacles is back in New York for the first time since 2003, along with its beloved giant faceless puppets (the hands opening the curtains, the life-size stick figures). What distinguishes “Mummenschanz” now is not originality. If anything, it’s hard to watch the parade of short, graceful sketches without thinking of how other companies have since done similar things, often better. "
