Mummenschanz | Fuller Hall, St. Johnsbury Academy | Theater | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice



When: Tue., Jan. 19, 7 p.m. 2016

Words: Who needs ’em? Certainly not the silent performers of the Swiss-based theater troupe Mummenschanz. These wordless wonders have used props, masks, shadow, light and humor to tell timeless, relatable tales through strictly visual theater since 1972. Known to feature anything from a giant Slinky to rolls of toilet paper, the performance, which boasts the same name as the troupe, holds appeal for adults and kids alike. As the New York Times notes, “the show is particularly vital to young audiences who’ve been raised on beeping gadgets and headphones, and rarely experience the extraordinary power of silence.” In the case of Mummenschanz, silence truly is golden.

Price: $15-64.
