If you are looking for an unusual, artistic experience in North Central, you might want to buy tickets to “Mummenschanz You & Me” at Madison Center for the Arts.

This new show by the playful Swiss puppeteers known as Mummenschanz is a performance without any words being said aloud that uses a wide range of materials in different shapes, sizes and colors. The troupe utilizes movement and lighting to create poetic images that reveal a story in short vignettes in this silent show. Performers get behind or inside the puppets and manipulate them in a certain way or to resemble something else, including a face, figure or animal.

This will be the first time this performance will appear in Arizona. You can see it at 7 p.m. June 9-12 and at 1 p.m. on June 13. For tickets, visit themadison.org.
