HOUGHTON -- MOMIX: BOTANICA comes to the Rozsa Center at 7:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday, Sept. 23 and 24. MOMIX blends acrobatic dance, spectacular
puppetry, and beautiful illusion -- a magical, memorable event for the entire family! Dancers in costumes of billowing fabric, feathers and fans melt into backdrops of leaves, flowers, light and shadow, day and night. Audiences will be amazed as dancers leap, flip and move to music that recalls nature at its most awe-inspiring.

According to Rozsa Director Susanna Brent, "MOMIX is spectacular! Somewhere between Cirque du Soleil and the Peking Acrobats!"

Known internationally for presenting work of exceptional inventiveness and physical beauty, MOMIX is a company of dancer-illusionists under the direction of Moses
