Join the fun, and a few hundred other cool Clevelanders
from 5 to 7PM on Fri 1/14, as we set you up for a night of
culture, snacks and tours. Start things off with hot hors d'oeuvres from
Sammy's and Affordable Party Planners and open wine bar at the
Cool Cleveland Warm-Up Party, with a self-guided tour of the art and
murals inside the State Theatre lobby. Then at 8PM, enjoy the magic of
MOMIX, who blend dance, gymnastics and circus acrobatics into
mesmerizing performances. A sweet package, all at a stunning price of only
$17.50 if you register today.
Register here before midnight Thu 1/6 for
your best value.

MOMIX Moses Pendleton's newest piece,
Opus Cactus, summons up visions of such desert denizens as a sidewinder
snake, tumble weeds, and scorpions, using props that include black light, live
fire, skateboards and tummy trolleys, giant gyroscopic play toys and an
occasional fantastic puppet.

Equally fascinating is a Gila monster that prowls the
stage, then breaks up into four bodies that crawl away inchworm style. Shadows
and silhouettes give the illusion of both plants and animals. Is there any
greater stage magic than to provide an audience with a fresh sense of self and
wonder? The New York Times says, "Opus Cactus is a suite
abounding with desert flora, fauna and fantasies." New York Post:
"Brilliant." And Newsday, "Your eyes foregt to blink and your breath
forgets to come out."

See MOMIX for yourself after you cool down from the work week at Cool
first party of 2005 in the State Theater lobby on Fri
from 5-7PM. Take a backstage tour of the theaters, and meander
through the generous State Theater lobby on a self-guided tour of the historic
Art Deco wall murals created by American modernist James Daugherty while sipping
complimentary wine and sampling delicacies from Sammy's and Affordable
Party Planners
. Cool Cleveland and MOMIX are your best bet for
what's Hot when it's Cold outside. Co-presented by Tri-C Center for Arts and
Culture and DANCECleveland.
