Modern dance at its best takes the Israeli stage with a slew of performances by Momix this month. Prepare your senses for an otherworldly dance experience
The American dance company Momix will celebrate the 2019-20 dance season of the Herzliya Performing Arts Hall in a special performance to mark the ensemble's 40th birthday. The company was founded in 1980 by choreographer and artistic director Moses Pendleton, one of the most popular and innovative choreographers and directors in the U.S. for the past 40 years. In 1971, he served as one of the founders of the groundbreaking Pilobolus Dance Theater, and in 1980 founded MOMIX. For the celebratory anniversary year, the company created VIVA MOMIX - a spectacular show that blends the repertoire of their most iconic works with new genius addition by Pendleton.
The reviews of Momix throughout the years refer to Pendleton's work as innovative, engaging, astonishing and surprising: The show embraces all the elements that characterize Momix's signature vignettes and otherworldly costuming – seamlessly transporting audiences on a sensual journey into Pendleton's surrealistic world that combines humor stretching the boundaries of movement in all its wonderful forms: dance, physical theater, circus acts, illusory athletics and true imagination.
