The Deal

Mummenschanz

Ordinary objects come to extraordinary life in the hands of the members of Mummenschanz. For four decades, the Swiss physical theatre company has used household items, masks, and absolutely no vocals at all to build otherworldly creatures from the ground up—a piece of tubing becomes a giant worm; a cluster of toilet-paper rolls turns one artist’s face into that of a wide-eyed alien being. With such playful innovation at the troupe’s core, it’s no surprise that Jim Henson personally selected them to close out the first season of The Muppet Show back in 1976. And their creativity hasn’t faltered over the years. As The New York Times noted, “if the troupe hasn’t changed, the world has; now the show is particularly vital to young audiences who’ve been raised on beeping gadgets and headphones, and rarely experience the extraordinary power of silence.”

Mayo Performing Arts Center

The Mayo Performing Arts Center straddles time. While one foot is planted in the old-fashioned charm of the 1930s movie-palace golden age, the other is firmly in the tech-savvy modern day. Between is a stretch of history that saw the theater fall into disrepair and then resurrect itself to its star-studded heyday thanks to volunteers. Since its 1994 rebirth, the center has welcomed everyone from the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg to Ringo Starr and Aretha Franklin. But, if the Mayo Center were a tripod, its third foot would certainly reach toward the future—a suite of education studios is on site to cultivate the next generation of performers.
