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, birdsong, 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. Founded by Moses Pendleton in 1980, MOMIX pushes 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.
Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts
Built in 1928, Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts dazzles patrons with an ornate art-deco façade and lush Spanish Renaissance interior. 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.
