MOMIX is a dance company created in 1980 by Moses Pendleton, a brilliant and inventive choreographer, founder member in 1971 of ground-breaking Pilobulos Dance Theater.
He collaborated with prestigious Paris Opera, Deutsch Opera and the Joffrey Ballet . In 1980 he choreographed the Closing Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics at Lake placid.
The name of the company suggests "a mixture of things by Moses" and rapidly established a solid international reputation for highly inventive and often ilusionistic choreography. The troupe has been touring around the world showing several different programs like Orbit, Baseball, Passion ( a recreation of Peter Gabriel' s music ), Opus Cactus, Lunar Sea or Botanica.
Cyntia Quinn ,main collaborator in the company has teamed with Moses Pendleton as dancer and associated director in this prodigious vanguardist troupe.
For three decades Momix has been celebrated internationally for their exceptional inventiveness conjuring up a world of surrealistic images using shadows, black light, music, humor and physical beauty.
Lunar Sea (Sun Flower Moon ) is one of the most impressive and stunning performances I' ve ever saw. Black light theater never went so far. A fascinating hipnotic trance takes you to a weightless sensual world through a brilliant group of dancers-illusionists.
You will be trapped from the first minute in a musical- visual voyage and taken to a world of magic: planet Moses Pendleton.
