MOMIX is a company of dancer-illusionists under the direction of Moses Pendleton. “Opus Cactus” takes audiences on a visual and sensory journey through the natural wonders of the American Southwestern desert. Pendleton’s style uses illusion to create images of cactuses, slithering lizards and fire dancers. MOMIX last performed on the Leach Theatre stage in 2016 with their work “Alchemia.”

Tickets are $42 for adults and $37 for youth and can be purchased through the Leach Theatre Box Office, located in the vestibule inside the main entrance of Castleman Hall, facing 10th Street. The Leach Theatre Box Office is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
