WVU Creative Arts Center
About the Event.
For the past 20 years, Momix has been celebrated for its ability to conjure up a world of surrealistic images, using props, light shadow, humor and the human body. "They are inspired vaudevillians, creating slapstick, science fiction and improvisational surprise," says the Chicago Tribune. "Their audience floats out on a dizzying high of pleasure." For the first time, this spectacular company of dancers/illusionists will bring its revolutionary vision to the Creative Arts Center stage in "Botanica." This program is a window into nature's ever-changing imagery amid an eclectic and riveting score that ranges from birdsong to Vivaldi. Using large-scale puppets, projected imagery and larger-than-life props designed by Michael Curry (The Lion King), Momix evokes a vivid landscape populated by Artistic Director Moses Pendleton's whimsical, fertile and mythical imagination. Pendleton creates an entertaining multimedia experience you won't want to miss.
