Fox Presents welcomes back international modern dance sensation MOMIX with their new full-length production Opus Cactus this Sunday, October 16, 7pm at the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. During the company's previous appearance, the near sold out show kept the audience mesmerized.

The desert world of soaring cactuses, slithering lizards, snakes and frolicking insects all come to life through the magic of MOMIX.
