From the incredible mind of Vermont’s own Moses Pendleton (former founding member of Pilobolus), MOMIX was born—a group of amazingly athletic dancer/illusionists who bring students on an unforgettable journey into the imagination. In the multimedia spectacular Opus Cactus they bring to fantastical life the flora and fauna of the American Southwest using outlandish dance, outrageous costumes, inventive contraptions, and riveting Native American music to explore life in the desert. Contorting themselves into dynamic images of cacti, slithering lizards, bounding antelopes, and windblown tumbleweeds, MOMIX dancers explode our sense of the possible with quirky humor and incredible visuals.

Links to American geography, animal life, plant life, creative expression, and physical fitness.
