This holiday season, MOMIX returns to The Joyce with Botanica, an audience favorite. MOMIX is celebrated for conjuring up a world of surrealistic images by using props, light, shadow, humor, and the human body in a startling way. With Botanica, the company is in top form, creating “an animated world” that “comes fabulously alive.” (The New York Times). This is thanks, in part, to the magical talents of master puppet designer Michael Curry.
Mr. Curry’s twenty-five year career boasts collaborations with visual directors such as Julie Taymor (The Lion King) and Robert LePage and production designers like Mark Fisher and Eiko Ishioka. He has created works for The Walt Disney Company, Cirque du Soleil, Universal Studios and The Olympics, as well as many international opera and stage companies.
Take a look at just a few of Michael Curry’s captivating creations:
