SPAC continues their innovative dance programming tonight with MOMIX. In Botanica, the renowned dance company will combine “elements of dance, theater and cinema to create spellbinding, larger-than-life images from the natural world.”

Writing of Botanica, a critic for The New York Times observed that it “can be enjoyed . . . for its high illusion-making skill and for the strength of its athletic, interchangeable dancers. It can be diverting to puzzle out how they do it.”

The critic for Oregon’s Willamette Week wrote, “The dancers in the show have bodies like Olympic athletes, and the lighting and costumes make the show as much about the art of the human form as about dance.”

MOMIX will perform Botanica tonight (Thursday, Aug. 1) at 8 PM at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (Saratoga Spa State Park, Saratoga Springs). Tickets are $25. For more info, call 587-3330.
