  Known internationally for presenting work of exceptional inventiveness and physical beauty, MOMIX is a company of dancer-illusionists under the direction of Moses Pendleton.  Pendleton’s newest creation,Alchemia, brings the audience into an enchanting, magical, ethereal, dream world: the World of the Unconscious.  Inspired by Jung, Yeats, and Alchemical literature, Pendleton loosely connects the four classical elements, focusing on the “Elementals,” or spirits of each.  By tapping into the unconscious level, his logic is that of dreams: the stream just below reality that is both magical and mysterious,  dark and light, mixing fire with water and earth with air.  Like every Momix performance, Alchemia is full of aesthetic thrills, surprising metamorphosis, and the sexuality of nature — a 90-minute concoction of light, music, dance, props, and imagery that abandons the world of reality and enters into the mysterious world of the ancient art.
