Tuesday, September 12, 2017 - 7:30pm


Due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey, the Lutcher Theater has cancelled Momix Opus Cactus scheduled to perform on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. The Box Office staff will be in touch with patrons soon regarding refunds and possible rescheduling information.

Experience a visual and sensory dance journey through the natural wonders of the American Southwestern desert. From cacti to gila monsters, the combination of pure physicality mixed with artistic beauty has made Opus Cactus an audience favorite. In the theme of the Stark Museum of Art Branding the American West exhibition we hope you will enjoy Moses Pendleton’s beautiful dance images of the American West.

MOMIX is known internationally for presenting work of exceptional inventiveness and physical beauty, MOMIX is a company of dancer-illusionists under the direction of Moses Pendleton. In addition to stage performances world-wide, MOMIX has worked in film and television, recently appearing in a national commercial for Hanes underwear and a Target ad that premiered during the airing of the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

After a ten-year rest period, Opus Cactus is back again with a new look, fresh energy, and fun surprises! Moses Pendleton brings the landscape of the American Southwest to life with his signature illusionistic style creating dynamic images of cactuses, slithering lizards and fire dancers.

Moses Pendleton has been one of America’s most innovative and widely performed choreographers and directors for over 40 years.  A co-founder of the ground-breaking Pilobolus Dance Theater in 1971, he formed his own company, MOMIX, in 1980. Mr. Pendleton has also worked extensively in film, TV, and opera and as a choreographer for ballet companies and special events.
