Opus Cactus is a dynamic journey into the hidden landscape of the American Southwest.  With a sense of danger, sensuality and humor, the desert world of soaring cactuses, slithering lizards, snakes and frolicking insects all come to life once uncovered through the magic of MOMIX.

If Salvador Dali and Leonardo da Vinci were inspired by National Geographic you’d get Opus Cactus, Moses Pendleton’s amazing evening-length work about the desert world. With their signature dance illusion style, MOMIX explores the mysterious creatures and cacti of the desert. Surreal, wondrous and massively creative, there’s nothing like the MOMIX performance experience.

“Inspired by the flora, fauna and simple magic of the American Southwest, Pendleton’s ingenuity, theatricality and cunning imagination are seen at full stretch in strange vignettes of the Sonoran desert” – New York Post
