I was fortunate to have seen Mummenschanz twice, so far. Once in New York City then again in Las Vegas. Mummenschanz is a German word that loosely translates to 'mime artist'. Their show is always a mesmerizing combination of new material and the good old classics. You cannot take your eyes away from the performers for a moment as their performance is entirely visual and the choreography delicately subtle, making use of light, shadow and their trademark bizarre masks. The stage is black, and so are their costumes until they introduce brightly colored props. They are also sometimes referred to as 'the barefoot performers'.
