MOMIX CELEBRATES SEASON KICKOFF @ JOYCE THEATER

TOTEMS




New York, NY – MOMIX celebrates the kick off of the company's 2017 season at The Joyce Theater in New York City from June 27 – July 16, 2017. Under the artistic direction of Moses Pendleton, the season will feature MOMIX’s acclaimed work “Opus Cactus,” a celebration of the landscape of the American Southwest, utilizing Pendleton’s signature illusionistic style. MOMIX transports audiences from their everyday lives to a fantasy world through its trademark use of magical lighting and imagery. Pendleton combines athletic dance, riveting music, outrageous costumes, inventive props and pure talent to create an entertaining multimedia experience.

SUN DANCE
After a twelve-year hiatus from New York City, “Opus Cactus” returns with an abundance of fresh energy. Celebrating the wonders and beauty of the American southwest, Pendleton’s “Opus Cactus” is a gorgeously colored, richly inventive work of dance fantasy. Graceful and athletic, the dancers dazzle with their technique, versatility and artistry, as they morph effortlessly into luminous, exotic, many-limbed creatures of the desert -- soaring outlandish birds, and skittering insect collectives. Audiences will witness giant saguaros, tumbleweeds, fire dancers, cactus wrens, and a slithering Gila monster emerge from an ingenious use of costumes, lighting, and the human body as the superbly physical MOMIX dancers extend the reach of the imagination – and dance – into worlds strange and new. With music from the Swingle Sisters to Brian Eno as a backdrop, this kaleidoscopic, illusory world beckons you to suspend your disbelief and embrace the wonder that is uniquely MOMIX.




“The hidden life of the desert will return to New York City after twelve years” says Artistic Director Moses Pendleton, ‘Opus Cactus’ blooms again!”

Ballet Hispanico



Ballet Hispanico, recognized as the nation's leading Latino dance organization since 1970, returns to the Joyce Theater from April 14-26, 2015 with 15 performances featuring five dynamic programs. Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now at www.joyce.org.

Highlights of this year's Joyce season include a raw and athletic world premiere by Mexico-based choreographer Miguel Mancillas and the dazzling New York premiere of Show.Girl. by Miami-based, Princess Grace Award-winning choreographer Rosie Herrera. Other highlights include the Joyce Premiere of Gustavo Ramírez Sansano's CARMEN.maquia, a contemporary spin on the iconic story about a passionate gypsy with set design by Luis Crespo and costumes by fashion designer David Delfin; Sombrerísimo, choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and commissioned by New York City Center for the 10th anniversary of the Fall for Dance Festival; andEl Beso, choreographed by Gustavo Ramírez Sansano, with original costumes by Venezuelan fashion designer Angel Sanchez.




For the first time during its New York Season, Ballet Hispanico will also offer a 90-minute matinee on Saturday, April 18 that is specially curated for children and families featuring excerpts from Ballet Hispanico's diverse repertory and a Q&A with the dancers. Hosted by Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro and Education Director AnaMaria Correa, Ballet Hispanico's fun, interactive and educational Performances for Young People-now celebrating 30 years-give families a glimpse into the beauty of the arts and Latino culture.
