Event venue Arteplage Biel-Bienne

Theater Mummenschanz

The world-famous St. Gallen mime troupe Mummenschanz will be present for the entire duration of Expo.02. The Mummenschanz are working on a new short programme that will be performed during the day as an Expo.02 special. In addition, the public can attend workshops or take a look behind the scenes at public rehearsals. Collages from films featuring Mummenschanz or about the troupe's work will reveal further aspects of this fascinating world. The evening programmes are performed by the Mummenschanz or by friendly national and international guest artists, such as the clown Gardi Hutter.

The prefabricated, industrial wooden structure, 39.20 m long by 15.00 m wide and 13.30 m high, is designed for continued use after Expo.02 at another location. The technical equipment meets the requirements for professional theatre performances, but the building is also used for film screenings, concerts and conferences. The WC facilities and the foyer are located under the rising rows of seats.
