March 21, 2001 – (Lexington, Ky.) – The internationally acclaimed dance-illusionist troupe MOMIX will be performing at the Lexington Opera House at 8 p.m. March 24. The event is sponsored by the University of Kentucky Student Activities Board Next Stage Committee.

MOMIX has been thrilling audiences around the globe for the past 16 years, under the direction of Moses Pendleton, who also launched the troupe Pilobolus.  Pilobolus performed for a packed house in Lexington in February 2000.

On March 24, MOMIX will perform “Orbit,” a breathtaking, inspirational piece that ingeniously incorporates stirring music, stunning illusion and awe-inspiring athletic feats into a brilliant dance extravaganza. “Orbit” is a work that is both highly inventive and beautiful. Pendleton conjures up a surreal world made of light, shadow, props, humor and the human body.

Based in Washington, Conn., MOMIX has been featured in several film and television projects, in addition to their world-wide stage performances, including PBS’s “Dance in America” series and “IMAGINE,” one of the first IMAX films.

Tickets for MOMIX are $17 for the general public, $15 for UK faculty and staff, $10 for UK students and are available through the UK Student Center Box Office by calling (859) 257-8427 and at other Ticketmaster outlets.
