Dancer Illusionists

Momix performed last night at the University of Washington's Meany Hall. What an exhilarating experience for all who attended. The innovative concepts of choreographer Moses Pendleton were transformed into an "other" reality by the skill of the dancers, light, movement, costumes, music. Thirteen pieces were performed, each creating its own world...even the shortest pieces were like the best short stories: you were drenched in the moment, the event felt complete, you were satisfied. Click on this link to see videos of some of the performances: you will just wonder at the balance, control, and beauty of what the human body can do! For two hours we were transported away from the grimness of the world's economic problems and the inanities of McCain, Palin,and Dino (the dinosaur) Rossi. In beholding, and being enveloped in, the beauty before us, we could hope that Barack Obama and Christine Gregoire would prevail.
