Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts
12700 Center Court Drive
562 916 8501
For a show that does not say much, Mummenschanz will leave you speechless. The purely nonverbal theater showcase casts its spell at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts.
With the inventive use of shadow, light, and creative expressive masks, the group explores timeless truths and insights of the human condition in a family-friendly spectacle that has sparked imagination and dazzled audiences around the world for decades.
Mummenschanz was founded in 1972 in Paris by Andres Bossard, Floriana Frassetto, and Bernie Schürch. Since then, audiences of all ages and cultures have been enchanted by the weird, timeless creatures and colorful forms. In time, the group earned rave reviews and fans with its bizarre masks and forms, light and shadow, and subtle choreography.
Today Mummenschanz has become a mystical experience, tackling everyday problems with hilarity and imagination. The stories told by the mask theater troupe, who perform in a surreal mask- and prop-oriented style, are mainly visual, with no musical tracking or stage set. Imagine only mask objects and bodies evolving against a black background to compose a playful paralanguage that can be understood by all.
