"An exhilarating showcase of marvels.” —Wall Street Journal
MOMIX comes from the incredible mind of Vermont’s own Moses Pendleton (founding member of Pilobolus). A group of amazingly athletic dancer/illusionists, MOMIX returns to the Flynn in a multimedia spectacular, Opus Cactus, bringing to fantastical life the flora and fauna of the American Southwest using outlandish dance, outrageous costumes, inventive contraptions, and riveting Native American music. Contorting themselves into dynamic images of cacti, slithering lizards, bounding antelopes, and windblown tumbleweeds, MOMIX dancers explode our sense of the possible with quirky humor and incredible visuals.
Programming is supported by endowments initiated through challenge grants from the Ford, Argosy, and Doris Duke Charitable Foundations and matched by generous support from the community. Dance performances are funded in part by the Flynn’s Fund for Dance, started with a lead gift from Andrea Rogers. Dance performances are supported by the Middlebury College Dance Program.
