Mummenschanz has been dazzling audiences worldwide for more than 47 years. Ever since its
successful three-year run on Broadway, the Swiss-based theater troupe has pioneered a unique
form of visual theater that spawned new genres in the art of movement. By creating a playful yet
compelling experience through the inventive use of shadow, light, and creative manipulation of
objects, Mummenschanz offers timeless insight on the human condition. The result is a visually-
stunning spectacle that transcends cultural barriers and sparks the imagination.
“You & Me” focuses on the love and mutual joy that audiences and performers experience
together. The show brings to life the large-scale masks for which Mummenschanz is known, as
well as revives a historic tradition of acrobatics. Also featured are some Mummenschanz’ classic
sketches that have stood the test of time. “You & Me” is a one-of-a-kind theatrical performance
by “The Musicians of Silence” that generates its own soundtrack of awe, joy and laughter.

Breathlessly inventive!” – New York Times
