The Swiss-based theater troupe, Mummenschanz, is coming to The Madison Center for the Arts the weekend of November 18-20, 2022, to perform its 50th Anniversary production for the last time in the United States.
For its anniversary production â€“ aptly titled â€œ50 Yearsâ€ â€“ MUMMENSCHANZ will be taking audiences on a journey filled with imagination and poetry, putting on the most beloved sketches from the foundationâ€™s repertoire over the past five decades. To mark the anniversary, Artistic Director Floriana Frassetto has devised a production that will take the public on a 50-year journey through the fascinating world of Mummenschanz. It will take a look back at the most popular, most successful productions of years gone by, featuring legendary characters such as the Clay Masks and the Toilet Paper Faces.
The show will also see appearances by the delicate, air-filled Giants, the Pipe Creature and plenty of other bizarre objects and shapes brought to life by the troupe. The production will also include sketches featuring surprising new forms and characters that capture the signature Mummenschanz spirit. This fantastic journey through Mummenschanz is lively, humorous, full of affection and brimming with imagination.
