I recently saw a production called Botanica by the group MOMIX and all I can say is Wow! MOMIX is a "company of dancers-illusionists", but that doesn't fully describe what they do. For me, it was magic on stage. The costumes, props, and lighting are incredible. The music is fabulous, ranging from classical Vivaldi to Peter Gabriel and beyond.
There is a wide variety in the acts, and I found many of them delightfully sensual. Story ideas were popping into my head, but like a good audience member, I didn't pull out a flashlight and write them down. This was especially important since we were in the second row. *sigh* What a heavenly ninety minutes that was!
I'm sharing this You Tube production since I didn't take pictures or videos because A) I don't like to distract the performers or my fellow audience members by holding up a phone or camera (hey, guy in front of me, there is already a video on You Tube. Put the damn camera down and watch the show), and B) I'm too busy enjoying the performance.
If you have the chance to see this group, go! You won't be sorry.
