MOMIX dance company to perform at Phillips Center Jan. 24
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — MOMIX returns to the Phillips Center for Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 24 with a performance of the critically acclaimed work â€śBotanica.â€ť
The company has been featured in film and television, including national commercial campaigns for Hanes and Target. The Philadelphia Inquirer said of MOMIX director Moses Pendleton, â€śhis inventiveness and artistry far surpass the popular Cirque du Soleil.â€ť
This production displays dance at its most organic and inventive. With costumes, projections, custom-made props, puppetry and a score ranging from birdsong to Vivaldi, â€śBotanicaâ€ť showcases the endlessly renewable energy of the companyâ€™s performers.
For 30 years, MOMIX under the direction of Pendleton has been celebrated internationally for its ability to conjure up a world of surrealistic images using props, light, shadow, humor and the human body.
