Mummenschanz offers 90 minutes of wordless wonder

No words. No music. This theatre production coming to Athens turns instead to otherworldly masks, costumes, choreography and large-scale props to tell its stories. Mummenschanz, a Swiss performance troupe founded in 1972, is bringing its 50-year anniversary production to Athens at the Pallas Theater on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 March. A surreal, wordless theatrical experience like no other.

Mummenschanz labels its actors “the Musicians of Silence” — and for good reason. The performers pantomime using an inventive visual language that transcends linguistic barriers. Spoken dialogue and music are left behind for the entire 90-minute duration of the show.

“Sometimes the silence becomes deafeningly loud!” Check out the show’s trailer on YouTube!

When: 22 – 23 March at 20.30 (90 minutes)
