School Matinée


December 03, 2021

This event occurred as part of the 21/22 Youth & Families season. This is an archived view.

A magical desert filled with puppets and wizards. Optical illusions. A floating dance on the moon. A colorful tour through the seasons.

21/22 Youth & Families

These are some of scenes in Viva MOMIX, a mix-and-match variety of sections from the company's most popular works. The two-act performance features vignettes from Botanica, Alchemia, Remix, Opus Cactus and Lunar Sea. Founded by Dartmouth alum and Pilobolus co-founder Moses Pendleton '71, MOMIX is known for using special lighting and video effects, imaginative costumes and sets, and offbeat choreography.



Generously supported by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies, the Class of 1961 Legacy: The American Tradition in Performance Fund, the Donna Bascom 1973 and Paul Biddelman Fund, Claire Foerster and Daniel S. Bernstein 1987,  and  Judy H. and Thomas E. Oxman '71

For more than 40 years, MOMIX has astonished audiences with nothing more than light, props and human bodies, creating "beguiling, eye-filling and often impressive visual and movement theatrics" (The Washington Post). In addition to stage performances, MOMIX has worked in film and television with performances on PBS's "Dance in America" series, France's Antenne II, and Italian RAI television, and the company's repertory has been broadcast to 55 countries. The company joined the Montreal Symphony in the Rhombus Media film of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, winner of an International Emmy for Best Performing Arts Special. MOMIX was also featured in IMAGINE, one of the first 3-D IMAX films to be released in IMAX theaters world-wide. Participating in the Homage a Picasso in Paris, MOMIX was also selected to represent the US at the European Cultural Center at Delphi. MOMIX has been commissioned by corporations such as Fiat and Mercedes Benz, performing at Fiat's month-long 100th Anniversary Celebration in Torino, Italy and Mercedes Benz's International Auto Show in Frankfurt, Germany.
