Momix in Alchemia 

When: Fri., Jan. 29, 8 p.m. and Sat., Jan. 30, 2 & 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $30-$50
The dance company Momix dazzled audiences with its 2011 production Botanica, which told the story of life on earth. Now the company returns with Alchemia, a physical exploration of the metaphysical sciences. The harnessing of the four elements in pursuit of the fabled philosopher's stone is the inspiration for this new piece, which again involves outrageous costumes, projected images, the imaginative use of physical props and puppets and, of course, Moses Pendelton's fantastic and inventive choreography. Medieval alchemists believed they would heal mankind with their findings — Momix's Alchemia proves that the old boys should have left the laboratory and looked to the arts for spiritual perfection. Alchemia is performed at 8 p.m. Friday and 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday (January 29 and 30) at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-4949 or Tickets are $30 to $50.
