About Mummenschanz: Musicians of Silence
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. Internationally acclaimed, the company have toured in 60 countries on five continents, with their performances that cross cultural boundaries and defy classification.
The performers of Mummenschanz create inspiring and captivating illusions using colourful masks, incredible props and skilful sleight of hand, producing a magical world of possibilities, all without uttering a word. The troupe’s playful and memorable exploits display an enormously inventive use of forms, shadow and light and creative manipulation of sculptural, expressive masks. The result is a visually stunning spectacle of entertainment that is suitable for all the family to enjoy.
At the Peacock Theatre for a strictly limited Summer holiday run of only ten performances, Mummenschanz's show Musicians of Silence offers an experience “for children who think they are adults and for adults who still believe they are children at heart.” (New York Times).
