Set to perform at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts on April 20 at 7:30 p.m., the revolutionary dance company MOMIX presents Botanica, combining a world of vibrant imagery revealing nature’s four seasons (Photo credit: Max Pucciariello).
With a diverse score ranging from Birdsong to Vivaldi, Botanica shows off the endlessly renewable energy of the superb MOMIX entertainers, with costumes, projections and custom-made props and puppetry.

MOMIX seemingly defies categorization as easily as its dancers defy gravity. Mesmerizing, magical and imaginative, MOMIX’s newest creation Botanica has played to packed houses and rave reviews around the world. The Wall Street Journal said “With its lush stage pictures and sensuous women, sometimes framed by beguiling men, MOMIX’s Botanica exudes a heady visual perfume.” Using light, shadow, larger than-life props, humor and the human body, their spellbinding show transports guests to a world of true fantasy and unrivaled beauty.
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 and a Target ad that premiered during the airing of the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
