One of the giants of the performing arts, Mummenschanz bedazzles with witty, weird, timeless creatures that perform unique stories without sound or music.

“It was almost as fun to hear children’s screams of delight, as it was to watch the wacky magic happening on stage.” – The Philidelphia Inquirer

In this wordless universe, the amazing Swiss troupe makes the ordinary extraordinary as colorful shapes like the famous “Clay Masks,” “Slinky Man,” and “Giant Hands” spring to life. This playfully compelling experience offers timeless insight into the human condition through the inventive use of shadow, light, and creative manipulation of objects.

This visually stunning, family-friendly spectacle sparks the imagination, transcends cultural barriers, and dazzles the eye. If you were enchanted by Momix and are captivated by Blue Man Group, Mummenschanz will transport you with delight!

Cirque Ziva                                                                                                                 Friday, April 8

The newest show from the amazing Golden Dragon Acrobats is a fast-paced, technically innovative and beautifully presented new show from the creative mind of artistic director Danny Chang. The large cast and spectacular set designs illustrate the best of Chang’s brand of artistic merit, high production value, and solid commitment to cultural exchange.

The New York Times said of its recent Broadway run, “Things Not to Try at Home (Not That You Ever Could). The Golden Dragon Acrobats from China do the impossible (or at least improbable) in ‘Cirque Ziva’…this family-friendly show will dazzle the younger set but might also have them stacking up the dining room chairs and climbing the curtains when they get home.”
