MOMIX | Opus Cactus : Wednesday, September 26th

 

We are kicking off our 2018-2019 Performing Arts Series with the mind-bending and soul-grasping talent of MOMIX.

Under the direction of Moses Pendleton and with nothing more than a bit of light, shadow, props, and the human body, MOMIX has astonished audiences on five continents for more than 38 years.

One night only at Albert Taylor Hall on Emporia State University campus, world renowned dancer-illusionists, MOMIX, will take you on a sensory journey through the American Southwest in their performance OPUS CACTUS.

Opus Cactus promises a night of of fun and surreal experiences for the whole family. Natural elements like slithering snakes and huge saguaro cacti combine with the physical artistry of MOMIX to magically translate the hidden beauty of the southwest.
