Opus Cactus

Marvel at the magnificence of the American Southwest landscape, abounding with towering cacti and slithering lizards, brought to life by the wildly inventive minds and bodies of MOMIX. Surreal, wondrous, and enormously imaginative, Opus Cactus is a full evening-length work that seamlessly melds dance and illusion along with spellbinding music and elaborate costumes for an entertaining experience the whole family will enjoy. Under the exacting eye of its founder and artistic director Moses Pendleton, MOMIX has earned an international reputation for its inventive, carefully crafted, and physically beautiful productions. “Inspired by the flora, fauna, and simple magic of the American Southwest, Pendleton’s ingenuity, theatricality and cunning imagination are seen at full stretch…” (Clive Barnes, New York Post).

A pre-performance discussion with Mason School of Dance professor, Daniel Joyce, begins 45 minutes prior to the performance.

Cocktails & Conversations: Join MOMIX company members in the lobby after the performance for a Q&A over cocktails.
