If I remember well, the company counted then only four (maybe six) components including a very young Daniel Ezlarow.
It was one of the best evening I ever spent in a theatre, a breathless performance and a priceless new form of entertaining . I was amazed.
The morning after, I run to the office of Per Lui, a gorgeously trendy fashion magazine published by Italian Conde’Nast.
I begged, literally, the young editor in Chief (at the time, a young Franca Sozzani, who is today the powerful Editor in Chief of Italian Vogue) “Franca, I saw a new group, we must publish a story, the show is extraordinary…” I was so pushy that I got a photographer and we went to shoot MOMIX for their first ever feature in an Italian magazine. I so wish I still had that issue…
Well, Per Lui closed few years later, but MOMIX didn’t.
Au contraire, they became famous all over the world.
I spend long time in New York and I don’t miss the chance to see them
at the Joyce Theatre in Chelsea.
Each time the miracle happens. Illusion, antigravity, magic, love, art, poetry, lights and visuals are melting together in moments that you have lived only on your dreams.
35 years later MOMIX are back at the Teatro Nazionale in Milan with a collage-performance appropriately titled
W MOMIX FOREVER.
“I wanted to celebrate the anniversary with something new, said Moses in the press conference, so I created “DADDY LONG LEG”, LIGHT REIGNS”, “AEREA”, “PAPER TRAILS” four new pieces that I mixed with moments from OPUS CATUS, BOTHANICA, reMIX SUN FLOWER MOON, all in one performance to represent novelty and continue the MOMIX vision, celebrating the past and testing the future”
