CAMI Music Signs Mummenschanz Touring Company
Formed in Paris in 1972 by founding members Andres Bossard, Floriana Frassetto and Bernie Schürch, MUMMENSCHANZ paved the way for nonverbal theater and multiple new genres. Since then, the group has established its legacy with tireless touring across five continents over four Decades by the original artists (Frassetto is still a main cast member), as well as current featured players, Philipp Egli, Pietro Montandon and Raffaella Mattioli, and technical directors Jan Maria Lukas / Dino de Maio.
Seen by millions in more than 60 countries, MUMMENSCHANZ humorously communicates timeless truths and insights on the human condition using a purely nonverbal universal "language." The group creates a playful and uniquely memorable theater experience through an inventive use of shadow and light and creative manipulation of sculptural, expressive masks. The visually stunning spectacle is a form of family-friendly entertainment that sparks the imagination, transcends cultural barriers and dazzles audiences and generations of fans around the world.
Since 2009, MUMMENSCHANZ has been represented by Laura Colby, Director Elsie Management, a relationship that facilitated the group's return to North America after a long absence, with two successful tours: 2010-2011 and the "40 Years" anniversary tour currently running from fall 2012 through winter 2013.
