This winter, contemporary dance-illusionist troupe MOMIX presents Botanica, a fantastical floral dance/illusion extravaganza featuring the work of Portland puppet/costume designer Michael Curry. Described as “a dreamlike journey through the four seasons,” Botanica will give any winter blues-afflicted Portlander an escapist jolt of colorful, fantastical costumes, clever props, playful visual illusion and, of course, dazzling dancing.

Members of the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon receive 20% off tickets for any Botanica show that weekend. If you aren’t an HPSO member now, let this be your incentive to discover more about the benefits afforded by membership to the Pacific Northwest’s long-standing horticultural and gardening organization. Membership costs $35 per year for individuals; $25 for students; and $40 for individual plus one (two in a household). Learn more about the bennies you get as a member of the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon here.

HPSO members are invited to attend the Saturday, March 2, 2013 evening performance, as this will be HPSO night, with a table and membership information to educate the public about the benefits of the HPSO and encourage membership in this rockin' organization. But the HPSO members' discount applies to any of the five performances.

Check out the HPSO website in the coming weeks: there may be a special post-performance reception for HPSO members that evening, perhaps catered, with the dancers in attendance. Check the HPSO website for more information in the coming weeks.
