MOMIX reMIX To Illuminate SPAC’s Dance Season
SARATOGA SPRINGS — The stunning, multi-media artistry of MOMIX, the celebrated troupe of dancer illusionists led by choreographer Moses Pendleton, returns to Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) on Thursday, July 22 at 8 p.m. The company will present reMIX, a snapshot of MOMIX’s most striking images from the past 30 years, created through MOMIX’s signature fusion of dance, theater and cinema. Famed company founder and choreographer Moses Pendleton will kick off the evening by presenting a pre-performance talk at 7 p.m. in the Hall of Springs Gold Room. “MOMIX’s presentation of Botanica was a highlight of last season, hailed by SPAC audiences and critics alike for its breathtaking beauty, innovation, and fantastical feats,” said Marcia J. White, SPAC’s President & Executive Director. Under Moses Pendleton’s direction, MOMIX is known for conjuring worlds that are a fascinating mixture of muscular acrobatics, clever illusionistic puppetry and a humorous play of shadow and light. reMIX is a compilation of 13 works including the Baths of Caracalla, an ensemble piece, set to David and Steve Gordon’s music; Table Talk, with a riveting soloist, who balances, suspends and floats on a table in a series of super-charged gymnastic moves; and If You Need Some Body, an ensemble work to Johann Sebastian Bach. reMIX also includes excerpts from MOMIX’s blockbuster full-length works. Tickets for the company’s performance of reMIX are offered at a special rate of $30 for inside seats and $15 for children 12 and under. Tickets for students of all ages are $15 on the night of the performance. Tickets to the pre- talk with Moses Pendleton are $5 with any performance ticket. This is an amphitheater only performance. Tickets are on sale online at spac.org.
