WHAT: Texas Tech University presents dance company MOMIX as part of the 2016-17 Presidential Lecture & Performance Series.

WHEN: 7 p.m. April 21 (Friday)

WHERE: Texas Tech University Allen Theatre, Student Union Building

EVENT: MOMIX's artistic director, Moses Pendleton, is one of America's most innovative and widely performed choreographers and directors. In 1981, Pendleton created MOMIX, which has been celebrated for its ability to conjure up a world of surrealistic images using props, light, shadow, humor and the human body. The troupe tours internationally, with a repertoire of seven full-length shows, and is currently celebrating 35 years of awe-inspiring work.

"OpusCactus" is a dynamic journey into the hidden landscape of the American Southwest. With a sense of danger, sensuality and humor, the desert world of soaring cactuses, slithering lizards, snakes and frolicking insects all come to life once uncovered through the magic of MOMIX.

Tickets for the performance are $18 and are available through Select-A-Seat at (806) 770-2000 or www.selectaseatlubbock.com. Texas Tech students are eligible to receive one free ticket with a valid student ID at the Student Union Building ticket booth.
