MOMIX, the Connecticut-based modern dance company has come and gone from Israel. However, the performance at the Tel Aviv Opera House was outstanding. I am writing about this experience to once again reiterate that while Israel often lacks cultural performances on the level of a MOMIX, this country is blessed that internationally acclaimed groups often come on tour here. When they do, they often, as was the case with the Best of MOMIX, choose to perform compilations of their finest performances. And, unlike America, such performances are accessible to all and the tickets, relatively speaking, are inexpensive.
One has to be vigilant about looking through local newspapers and visiting ticket agent websites on a regular basis in order to find out about what is coming. And, one last piece of advice - book immediately!
