When: 1/22
Why: Bask in silence, shadows and big, funny faces at FirstWorks’ opening show of 2015. Mummenschanz, the experimental Swiss mask theater troupe that’s performed around the world for more than four decades, transcends age and cultural barriers by eliminating language, music and sound altogether.
