Known internationally for presenting work of exceptional inventiveness and physical beauty, MOMIX is a company of dancer-illusionists under the direction of Moses Pendleton. “Opus Cactus” takes audiences on a visual and sensory journey through the natural wonders of the American Southwestern desert, with Pendleton’s signature illusionistic style creating dynamic images of cactuses, slithering lizards and fire dancers. The combination of pure physicality mixed with artistic beauty has made “Opus Cactus” an audience favorite.
MOMIX last performed on the Leach Theatre stage in 2016 with their enchanting work “Alchemia.” The company is delighted to return to Rolla again in 2018 with “Opus Cactus.”
