The reigning "dancer-illusionist" of this or any age, the creations of Vermont native Moses Pendleton are the sorts of creations that leave some audiences checking their eyes. As in, "Is this real, or a re-interpretive flash-back of Disney’s ‘Fantasia.’"

Juggling dancers and projects with trail-blazing ease ever since founding his international dance company Momix in the early ‘80s, Pendleton’s most recent work "Botanica" enlists dancers in honor of his one abiding passion beside dance—gardening.

The work has received reviews as a dazzling, multimedia display of nature’s power and beauty, set to a score ranging from Vivaldi to nature’s own birdsong. If you thrilled to the recent opening of the Natural History Museum of Utah, you’ll dig this. If you like dance you’re almost certain to love it. And if you adore spectacle in service of art, you may well find yourself in raptures of ecstasy.
