40 years of fascinating mask and shadow theatre choreographed in cryptic and subtle fashion by the swiss troupe of mummenschanz - their innovative dialogue-free experiments with body-language and clever interpretations may be crude but it illustrates beautifully the powerful recognitive abilities we acquire from birth and how conditioning forces us to relate to certain visual clues. their work requires a physical alacrity combined with only elementary props and masks - to make us see what isn’t there… more than mimicry, their performances are heartening affirmations of the magic of imagination.
