**MOMIX's dancers perform Botanica**
Clad in glow-in-the-dark leotards and deftly manipulating sophisticated props, the dancers of MOMIX present a lesson in natural history using the medium of the human body. The group moves to the organic sounds of Vivaldi, bird song, and tree gossip while evoking some of Earth's forgotten wonders, from the romance in miniature between bee and flower to the ponderous dance of the bygone triceratops. The creative drive and puppetry skills of the troupe also extend beyond the confines of the real world, with their movements displaying fanciful centaurs and strangely self-aware dandelions. ####MOMIX Founded by [Moses Pendleton](http://gr.pn/15dh9c7) in 1980, [MOMIX](http://gr.pn/XMdXyJ) pushes the boundaries of physical expression through a [repertoire](http://gr.pn/15dhpaX) of high-concept programs. The group has appeared in multiple television commercials and on PBS's Dance in America, and its works have been broadcast to 55 countries and an unknowable number of alien craft currently in orbit. Pieces such as [Botanica](http://gr.pn/q6xX7l) and [Lunar Sea](http://gr.pn/15dmccG) take inspiration from the natural world, and others such as [Baseball](http://gr.pn/15dmIY1) and [Passion](http://gr.pn/YehyWt) (made in collaboration with Peter Gabriel) are rooted in a more human foundation.

About Count Basie Theatre
Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
