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.

FIRST CONTACT


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!”
