DanceHouse presents MOMIX (US), an astounding company of ‘dance-illusionists’, in the Canadian premiere of Viva MOMIX, on stage in Vancouver April 12 & 13, 2019.
DanceHouse Presents MOMIX: Viva MOMIX
Where: Vancouver Playhouse (600 Hamilton St, Vancouver)
When: April 12 & 13, 2019 at 8:00pm
Tickets: From $35, available online or call (604) 801-6225
Helmed by Artistic Director Moses Pendleton, one of America’s most innovative choreographers and directors, MOMIX is revered for its ability to conjure a surreal world using props, light, shadow, humour, and the human body. Viva MOMIX celebrates the best of more than three decades of works, with a selection of company favourites mixed with three new creations.
Developed in 2015 in honour of MOMIX’s 35th anniversary season, Viva MOMIX features stunning vignettes from six of their iconic productions: MOMIX in Orbit, Botanica, Lunar Sea, ReMIX, Classics, and Opus Cactus, alongside scenes from three new works created for the company’s birthday celebration at Teatro Nazionale in Milan, Italy — Daddy Long Leg, Light Reigns, and Paper Trails. Praised for its “beguiling, eye-filling, and impressive visual and movement theatrics” (The Wall Street Journal), Viva MOMIX will transport audiences on a journey into a surreal fantasy. Elements of the natural world — animal, plant, and mineral — are transmuted through the technical prowess of nine gifted artists who shape their bodies into creations that suspend the rational mind and replace it with wonder and a glorious sense of play.
I have a pair of tickets to give away to the performance on April 13th.
