Filled with imagination and poetry, the production features such legendary characters as the Clay Masks, the Toilet Paper Faces, the air-filled Giants, and the Pipe Creature, along with an abundance of other bizarre objects and shapes that spring to life on stage. The production also includes sketches featuring surprising new forms and characters that capture the signature Mummenschanz spirit of infinite possibility and delight.
