The key transformation in Momix’s new show, Alchemia, is not from lead into gold—there was clearly never anything leaden about its spritely dancers. Instead, human bodies mutate into manifestations of earth, water, air, and fire, with ample help from flowing costumes, giant props, and uncanny lighting effects. Choreographer Moses Pendleton leads the company in an exploration of nature’s power and its sheer, surprising sensuality, amounting to what Philly.com has called “a brilliant journey into a surreal otherworld.”
It’s all in keeping with Momix’s mission of pushing the boundaries of physical expression through a repertoire 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. One mark of the troupe’s global ambitions: Pendleton also choreographed the Doves of Peace opening-ceremony performance at the Sochi Winter Games.

Elegant columns, glittering chandeliers, and vibrant geometric patterns create a palatial atmosphere in the lobby. The auditorium's intimately arranged velvet seats leave every viewer within 70 feet of the stage, eliminating the need for binoculars or drawn-out games of telephone describing the onstage action.
