Mummenshanz was a pantomime troupe founded in Switzerland in 1972. They made fantastic use of masks and props, and brought abstract shapes to life with great character.
The name Mummenschanz is German for “mummery,” or a play involving mummers. Mummer is an Old English term for a mime artist.
I like this video not only for it’s fun, and it’s quick pace, but for the unmistakable character of the actors. One is clearly the nice guy, and the other has a bad attitude and expresses it in the conflict he brings.
