Dance Celebration, presented by Dance Affiliates and Penn Presents, unveils the latest work by Mummenschanz, a Swiss mime troupe that displays figures that can be broken down and built up again.
Next, the latest evolution of the wordless theatrical form that was invented by the original Mummenschanz trio in 1972 comes to the Zellerbach Theatre at the Annenberg Center-for six shows beginning January 31 and running through February 4. (See FEBRUARY at PENN).
Mummenschanz transcends the barriers of language, nationality and age attracting audiences from 7-97 to achieve an art form that remains universal in its appeal. It combines both organic and geometric elements. They blend three genres: dance, theater and puppetry.
