MOMIX ReMIX in Lugano

"From the moment we enter this live we are in the flow of it. We measure it and we mock it, but we cannot defy it. We cannot even speed it up or slow it down. Or can we? Have we not each experienced the sensation that a beautiful moment seemed to pass too quickly, and wished that we could make it linger? Or felt time slow on a dull day, and wished that we could speed things up a bit?"
Eisenheim in The Illusionist

MOMIX ReMIX is a thrilling reverie which transports the audience to a fantasy world with innovative props, entrancing music, magical lighting and performers of exceptional inventiveness and physical beauty. Known as dance-illusionists, the cast of MOMIX ReMIX defy gravity; performing unimaginable feats with powerful grace, and creating scenes of dream-like splendour.

Director Moses Pendleton founded MOMIX after working on the choreography for the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympics. Since then they have made five television shows for the Italian network RAI which have screened in over 50 countries. They collaborated with Charles Dutoit and the Montreal Symphony in the film Pictures at an Exhibition which won an International Emmy for Best Performing Arts Special, and were also involved in one of the first ever IMAX films, IMAGINE.

If you are eager for more of MOMIX's artistic joy, or have not yet had the pleasure, hurry down to the Palazzo dei Congressi this evening and buy your tickets for this performance featuring the troupe's most popular works. Tickets also available at Manor or SBB railway station.
