They are wonderful, a league of it's own. Hard to describe, something between ballet, show and puppetry - very creative and mesmerizing.

From the creators of Opus Cactus, Baseball and Passion comes a fantasy land of breathtaking beauty. Some have likened Botanica to the film, Avatar, but on stage.

MOMIX combines athleticism, riveting music, inventive costumes and spellbinding choreography to create a world of surrealistic images and wonder all brought to life by a cast of dancer-illusionists.

This brilliant exploration of nature’s forms uses large scale puppets and larger-than-life props designed by Michael Curry (The Lion King_). The exotic visual landscape emerges from Artistic Director "Moses Pendleton’s ":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MosesPendletonwhimsical, fertile and mythological imagination.
