Opus Cactus is a dynamic journey into the hidden landscape of the American Southwest.

 

With a sense of danger, sensuality and humor, the desert world of soaring cactuses, slithering snakes and frolicking insects all come to life once uncovered through the magic of MOMIX.

 

MOMIX’s Artistic Director, Moses Pendleton, is one of America’s most innovative and widely performed choreographers and directors. In 1981 Pendleton created MOMIX, which has been celebrated for its ability to conjure up a world of surrealistic images using props, light, shadow, humor and the human body. The troupe tours internationally, with a repertoire of 7 full-length shows, and is currently celebrating 35 years of awe-inspiring work.

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.
