A TMT Christmas: The Mummers' Masque, is a program full of merriment, disguise, music, and dance. TMT presents its fifth commission, Dean Burry's celebration of the Newfoundland mummer tradition of door-to-door entertainment and socializing over the Christmas season. The musicians (playing accordion, penny whistle, percussion, double bass, fiddle, and guitar), singers and dancers will move about the festively decorated performance space, filling it with laughter, song, dance, and myth. The work incorporates the legend of St. George, original music, and traditional carols.
