9-21 Feb. Opus Cactus moved from Teatro Olimpico to Teatro Italia.
Moses Pendleton's Opus Cactus which he choreographed for Momix in 2002 was scheduled at Rome's Teatro Olimpico. However as Teatro Olimpico is temporarily closed because of the collapse of the top storeys above the entrance to the theatre's bar the ever popular Opus Cactus has been relocated to Teatro Italia, Via Bari 18, not far from Rome's Sapienza university (metro B stop Bologna or Policlinico).
Momix, which now had three teams of dancers, was started by Pendleton in 1981 and its mix of mime, dance and acrobatics probably makes it one of the world's best-known and most popular dance companies. There is hardly a season at Teatro Olimpic without a Momix performance. This year Opus Cactus is back with the new look bringing the Arizona desert alIve once again with cactuses, lizards and fire dancers.Teatro Italia, Via Bari 18, teatroolimpico.it, or www.teatroitalia.info.
