Before Cirque du Soleil began reenacting absynthe-laced flashbacks of French street performers, MOMIX was drawing deep from the well of the artistic imagination to provide audiences a pastiche of physicality, props, costumes, sound and light. For more than three decades — under the leadership of Moses Pendleton — MOMIX's dancer-illusionists have performed kinetic works of surreal and fanciful art, using big giant colorful whatnots and roly poly thingamgigs to transport viewers into a whole other world. MOMIX’s current show, Botanica — with one performance only at the Straz’s big room — follows the “rhythms of the seasons, the changing shape of life on Earth and the passing of a day.” The varied score goes from birds chirping to Vivaldi. Costumes, projections and giant puppetry, designed by Michael Curry, further add to what’s sure to be a triptastically enchanting mood. —Julie Garisto
