“For children who think they are adults and for adults who still believe they are children at heart” New York Times


Having captivated audiences with its unique brand of visual theatre for more than 40 years, Mummenschanz makes its first appearance in the UK since 2006 this summer, visiting the Peacock Theatre for a strictly limited run from Saturday 19 – Sunday 27 July 2014. The company’s anniversary show Musicians of Silence presents the highlights of more than four decades of creative endeavours.


Mummenschanz has toured in 60 countries on five continents, winning international acclaim with performances that cross cultural boundaries and defy classification.


The performers of Mummenschanz create inspiring and captivating illusions using colourful masks and incredible props, producing a magical world of possibilities without speaking any words. The troupe creates a playful and 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.


Formed in Paris in 1972 by Swiss artists Bernie Schürch, Andres Bossard and Floriana Frassetto, the pioneering performance troupe has sought to create a non-verbal theatrical language that speaks to audiences of all ages and nationalities. The group had its breakthrough during a three year Broadway run at the Bijou Theatre in New York from 1977 - 1980. Since then, the group has toured continuously, performing in theatres and festivals worldwide.


Original cast member Floriana Frassetto continues to perform with the company as a featured artist alongside Philipp Egli, Pietro Montandon and Raffaella Mattioli.


The creative work of Mummenschanz appeals to generations of fans around the world. Musicians of Silence is a visually stunning spectacle of entertainment that is suitable for all the family to enjoy.
