I saw Momix yesterday. “Passion,” the new dance piece by Moses Pendleton. ‘Passion’ is based on ‘The Last Temptation of Christ‘ , a novel written by Nikos Kazantzakis ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikos_Kazantzakis) . Few years later, in 1988, an equally controversial film adaptation was made by Martin Scorsese. ‘Passion’ performance is a combination of those two influences.
The projections imply that everything in the universe is ultimately connected. One sequence begins with views of ice floes or are they clouds? They turn into branches — or are they pieces of coral? Then they become flowers. The many images of trees both pay tribute to nature and remind one that in medieval and Renaissance poetry.The performance was great :-))
I found on youtube some of Momix recording performances.
