has been a world-wide delight for four decades, born from the minds of Swiss experimental theater performers and incorporating elements of dance, theater, masks and mummery. Performers often dress head-to-toe in black and move in complex choreography while holding large props built out of ordinary items made to look like gigantic masks. It’s a one-of-a-kind theater experience, and now the dance troupe is on its 40th anniversary tour with stops in the North Bay. Mummenschanz transcends the ordinary on Sunday, Nov. 2, at the Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium, 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael. 3pm. $20–$45. 415.499.6800.
