The story of the most famous modern mime troupe. In 1977, a faceless, wordless, music-less theatre troop lands in Broadway: the Mummenschanz! Creators of a new form of theatre, a mixture of comedy, dance, mime and magic, their success is such that their show will run for three years. Kamal Musale’s film goes back over the artist’s career. It shows, through rehearsals, the difficulties of their new creation, bringing us closer to the magic and mystery that makes all the genius of Mummenschanz.
