Momix: Alchemia

Moses Pendleton, founder and artistic director of the dancer-illusionist troupe MOMIX, delivers Alchemia. The show has a dash of the whimsical, fantastical world of wizardry. Incorporating an extremely unusual soundtrack, the two-part multimedia presentation features a handful of dancers who dazzle as they explore the four elements: earth, wind, fire and water. Nothing about the show is ordinary. From the shooting red flames that engulf the stage to the stunning aerial stunts and awe-inspiring costumes, Pendleton’s latest work is enchanting, innovative and overwhelmingly beautiful. He still manages to outdo himself with Alchemia, as the dancers explore the metamorphosis of life’s most basic elements in one incredible show of art. Alchemia is performed with no intermission.

8 p.m. Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713‑227‑4772 or visit spahouston.org. $28 to $83.
