Mummenschanz Coming to The Quick

On Saturday, January 24, the Quick Center for the Arts will welcome world-renowned Mummenschanz to the stage for performances at 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets for this fun and family-friendly event are $55, $45, $35 and $5 for Fairfield University students.

In the wordless universe of Mummenschanz, the ordinary becomes extraordinary when common materials, everyday objects (like toilet paper) and colorful abstract shapes and forms spring to life. Since its three-year run on Broadway, Mummenschanz has toured the globe, entertaining audiences of all ages for more than four decades by creating a playful yet compelling experience through the inventive use of shadow, light, and creative manipulation of objects.

Floriana Frassetto, the Swiss troupe’s Italian-born creator, who founded Mummenschanz with Bernie Schürch and Andres Bossard in 1972, told The Huffington Post that its most recent works are “visual, ironic, interactive and playful.”

For tickets, visit the Quick Center Box Office or www.quickcenter.com or call 203.254.4010.
