Fall Down the Rabbit Hole with MOMIX: Alice



"An exhilarating showcase of marvels for the men and women of Momix, who cavort for their eagerly applauding audiences like so many skilled acrobats in their element…[they] gleam like gold." The Wall Street Journal

"A feast for the eyes, this performance will linger in my subconscious for years to come." Broadway World Review

MALIBU, CA – February 9, 2024 – Beautiful and surreal, MOMIX presents their newest work, MOMIX: Alice, at Smothers Theatre on the campus of Pepperdine University in Malibu on Wednesday, February 28, 2024 at 8:00 p.m.

MOMIX, ​​a company of dancer-illusionists under the direction of Moses Pendleton, works to create visually stunning and theatrical performances combining elaborate dances with spectacular props and costumes such as silks, skis, and visuals. The company has been featured on TV, film, and commercially, and has been broadcast to 55 countries worldwide. Each performance pushes the boundaries of the body, and reaches to go where dance and multimedia presentation has not yet gone before. As Pendelton explains, MOMIX endeavors to create pieces “using the human body to investigate non-human worlds..."

Travel down the rabbit hole MOMIX-style with Moses Pendleton's newest creation, Alice, inspired by Alice in Wonderland. As Alice’s body grows and shrinks and grows again, Pendleton’s dancers extend themselves by means of props, ropes, and other dancers. In an endless search for another gravity, Pendleton combines athletic dance, riveting music, outrageous costumes, inventive props, and pure talent to create an entertaining multimedia experience that will surprise, enchant, and astonish. As Alice falls down the rabbit hole and experiences every kind of transformation, so will the audience.

A mix of breath-taking athleticism and stunning artistic beauty, MOMIX once again delivers a performance experience, derived from the incredible Alice in Wonderland  story, that is sure to both amaze and delight Pepperdine audiences. 

Tickets, priced starting at $32.50 for the public and $10 for full-time Pepperdine students, are available now by calling (310) 506-4522 or online at the event page.
