Known internationally for presenting works of astounding inventiveness and physical beauty, MOMIX, a company of dancer-illusionists founded and directed by Moses Pendleton, marks its long-awaited return to the Auditorium Theatre following its engaging production of Home for the Holidays in December of 1997. Audiences are invited to travel down the rabbit hole, MOMIX-style, with Pendleton’s ALICE, inspired by Alice in Wonderland. As Alice’s body grows and shrinks and grows again, Pendleton’s dancers extend themselves by means of props, ropes and other dancers – sharing a family-friendly journey that is magical, mysterious, fun, eccentric and much more!
