Momix and the choreography of Moses Pendleton have been capturing the imaginations of audiences for years now. In this new work, Pendleton uses dance to bring the desert to life against a soundtrack that combines Native American sounds, the Swingle Singers, Bach and Brian Eno. The result is a work that has been compared to Disney’s Fantasia and Cirque du Soleil. Expect acrobatics and incredible special effects.
Momix performs Opus Cactus at Clowes Hall, Butler University, Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. A pre-performance talk by Susan McGuire, former principle dancer with the Paul Taylor Dance Company, takes place in the Krannert Room at 7:15.
