Tomorrow starts the 4-week limited holiday engagement in New York City of MUMMENSCHANZ “40 YEARS” (from December 11, 2012 – January 6, 2013), which is the centerpiece of a five-month North American Tour through March 2013.

MUMMENSCHANZ, Switzerland’s most famous theater group, is celebrating its 40th anniversary with audiences all over the world. Currently, the world-renowned group is on an extensive international tour that has performed before hundreds of thousands of people in major cities, countries and continents over the past two years–including Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Korea, New Zealand, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, United States, and more!

In the witty, weird, wordless universe of MUMMENSCHANZ, the ordinary becomes extraordinary when common materials, everyday objects and colorful abstract shapes and forms spring to life. The group creates a playful and uniquely memorable experience through an inventive use of shadow and light and creative manipulation of sculptural, expressive masks. The result is a visually stunning spectacle of family entertainment that sparks the imagination, transcends cultural barriers and captivates generations of audiences around the globe.
