MOMIX

regular season). But leave it to Moses Pendleton and his merry band of acrobatic mischief-makers to uncover the magic behind the myths.

Leading off this twentieth-anniversary year of the Ann Arbor Summer Festival in family-friendly fashion — and on Father's Day weekend, no less — MOMIX presents its evening-long deconstruction of the (arguably former) national pastime. Baseball developed from a shorter piece originally commissioned to celebrate the opening of a new San Francisco Giants spring training facility in Arizona in 1992, and much of its movement inspiration derives from time spent with the team.

Last seen here in 2001, MOMIX is a self-described troupe of physical theater illusionists with one foot planted in the dance camp and the other firmly outside it. Definitions and narrow categories don't apply. Suffice it to say that since the beginning of his career with Pilobolus and as the founder and artistic director of MOMIX, Pendleton has been committed to breaking artistic boundaries and joyously confounding expectations.
