Explore the splendors of the desert with the irrepressible Moses Pendleton and the internationally acclaimed dancer-illusionist troupe MOMIX when they present OPUS CACTUS on January 6 at 8 pm and January 7 at 2 pm, sponsored by Thomaston Savings Bank. Tickets are available at the Warner Box Office.
In this visual journey into the mysteries and hidden secrets of the Southwestern desert, OPUS CACTUS brings the landscape and all of its creatures to life with Pendleton’s signature illusionistic style to create dynamic images of cacti, slithering lizards and fire dancers which one reviewer describes as, “exploding with a sense of magic, danger, sensuality, quirkiness, humor and beauty that can be found in that often hidden world.” This show is sure to captivate audiences of all ages!
“…there are enough of those patented Momix moments – when your eyes forget to blink and your breath forgets to come out – to make 'Cactus' another winning addition to the repertory.” - Sylviane Gold, Newsday
“Inspired by the flora, fauna, and simple magic of the American Southwest, Pendleton’s ingenuity, theatricality and cunning imagination are seen at full stretch in strange vignettes of the Sonoran desert.” - Clive Barnes, New York Post
