Renowned theatrical troupe comes to the Quick Center

Mummenschanz, the renowned theatrical troupe, will perform two shows at Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 2 and 8 p.m.

Tickets are $55, $45 and $35. For tickets, visit the Quick Center Box Office or quickcenter.com or call 203-254-4010 or toll free at 1-877-ARTS-396.

In the wordless universe of Mummenschanz, the ordinary becomes extraordinary when common materials, everyday objects (such as toilet paper rolls) and colorful abstract shapes and forms like the famous “Clay Masks,” “Slinky Man” and “Giant Hands” spring to life. By creating a playful and compelling experience through the inventive use of shadow, light, and creative manipulation of objects, Mummenschanzoffers timeless insight on the human condition. The result transcends cultural barriers and sparks the imagination.

The entire program of puppetry and visual antics is performed without music or sound. The show will feature classic audience favorites, as well as brilliant new creations seen for the first time.

Since its three-year run on Broadway, Mummenschanzhas pioneered a new form of visual theater and has toured in 60 countries on five continents. The troupewas created by founding members Andres Bossard, Floriana Frassetto and Bernie Schürch.

Critics have long lauded Mummenschanz for its one-of-a-kind creativity.

“My inner kid seldom stopped grinning. Its longevity is well earned,” wrote a New York Times reviewer. The Boston Globecheered “Mummenschanz mystifies and delights.”

The troupe strives to strike a universal chord with audience members, according to Frassetto. “The ‘stories’ we tell are unique in that they have no sound or music and we hope that our show will awaken the little child in everyone.”
