The dance of illusion

by Dege Legg

PASA presents the illusionist dance theater company MOMIX Botanica.

PASA has no shortage of eclectic performers this season. As always, they provide the community with the best in great performances as well as educational and outreach activities ranging from classes and workshops to special daytime performances for students to special events for senior citizens and more.

This week is no different. From Oct. 18 - 20, PASA presents the illusionist dance company MOMIX Botanica and several other Botanica-related events. The daydream-like performance combines athletic dance, riveting music, outrageous costumes, inventive props and incredible talent to create an unforgettable multimedia experience. Botanica transports the viewer to a world of surreal images and childlike wonder brought to life by a cast of dancer-illusionists.

Reservations are available by calling (337) 237-2787 Ext. 206. The company's finale will be a student performance on Oct. 20 at the Heymann. Tickets and reservations for the performances are available through PASA's website and at the Heymann Center box office.
