MOMIX, the company of dance illusionists, brings its latest mix of multi-media magic to New York this summer at The Joyce Theater in New York City from July 24 – August 12.
Known for presenting works of astounding beauty and exceptional invention, MOMIX productions combine the wonders of the human form, nature, music and life; using spectacular lighting effects, outrageous costumes and unbelievable props to enchant audiences of all ages.
This season in New York City, the company will show “MOMIX,” a self-titled production featuring hits from their expansive repertory, along with the New York City premiere of three works: Daddy Long Leg, Light Reins and Paper Trails.
“MOMIX” will also feature a mix of the company’s most popular works over its almost 40 year history. Acclaimed and visually stunning works such as Marigolds feature dancers transforming into a field of brilliantly colored flowers that dance samba. Snow Geese is an exploration of flight using black lights to combine movement and lighting. A distinctive prop and precise movements capture the imagination in Dream Catcher, where a duo becomes part of a moving sculpture. These and other famed dances have been chosen for this season.
Audiences at The Joyce Theater will also be able to see the New York City premier of three new works. Created for MOMIX’s 35th anniversary, these works exemplify the company’s unique aesthetic. In Daddy Long Leg, the audience witnesses the high jinks of a comic trio of gauchos with one extended leg from the Pampas plains of Argentina. In Light Reins, rods of shifting light invoke unique patterns that caper amongst the dancers.Paper Trails makes use of paper as both costume and sculpture.
“MOMIX’s aesthetic is to make contact, to have the human make contact with the non-human — the plant and animal and the mineral, and seeing what connections the human form has, both emotionally and physically. We combine acrobatics, gymnastics, and highly skilled dancers with costume, lighting, sound and props to create visual and physical theater. The program for this New York City season has several sections; it’s kind of like an album with several singles — side A, side B. There is not an overall story so much as an impression, and you don’t know what’s coming next” says Moses Pendleton, Founder and Artistic Director of MOMIX.
