Mummenschanz has enchanted audiences worldwide with its poetic non-verbal performances for half a century. The company was founded in Paris in 1972 by Bernie Schürch, Andres Bossard and FlorianaFrassetto. Today, Frassetto serves as the company’s artistic director and the group consists of seven performers who appear on stage in different combinations. On stage, Mummenschanz is made up of FlorianaFrassetto, Christa Barrett, Kevin Blaser, Tess Burla, David LaBanca, Sarah Lerch, and Oliver Pflug. They are supported backstage by Eric Sauge and Marc Reinhardt.
In addition to dazzling audiences internationally throughout its five decades, the troupe performed for three years on Broadway, and has appeared in numerous media – including music videos and television. They appeared on “The Muppet Show,” “Sesame Street,” “3-2-1 Contact,” and “Northern Exposure.” In honor of their 50 years of contribution to arts and culture, Swiss Post recently released a special Mummenschanz stamp, which celebrates two of the groups most iconic characters. Mummenschanz is one of the few Swiss artists or groups to have been so honored.
