MOMIX is a dance company founded in 1981 by Moses Pendleton, a choreographer who had previously co-founded the groundbreaking Pilobolus, an ensemble that has performed in Nashville on numerous occasions. Previous MOMIX creations — things like Orbit, Passion and Lunar Sea — are distinguished by fantasy, illusion and multimedia effects, which provide its lithe and acrobatic performers a malleable and constantly intriguing ambience in which to express their exoticism. Music scores are eclectic and textural, as readily derived from synthesizers as from the sounds of the forest. Pendleton’s latest, Botanica, follows the rhythms of the New England seasons, and somehow the passing of a day encompasses satyr imagery, scantily clad bodies and human limbs that wiggle like worms, all in pursuit of a dreamlike yet playfully whimsical view of the natural world. The colorful costumes, projections and props are by Michael Curry. This is a one-night-only event, and contemporary dance mavens will be wise to postpone all other activities and make the effort to catch this distinctive, visually compelling, internationally renowned troupe.
