Botanica: "...is the IMAX version of dance theater." "a savvy mix of puppetry, strobe lights and multi-media" Star Ledger
Opus Cactus: "Inspired by the flora, fauna, and simple magic of the American Southwest, Pendleton’s ingenuity, theatricality, and cunning imagination are seen at full stretch in strange vignettes of the Sonoran desert." The New York Times
“I’d love to be able to see into Pendleton’s dreams just one night, but dreams alone don’t make theater like this. It needs imagination, an understanding of the laws of physics- inertia, centrifugal force, gravity, weight, velocity—and the grit to out the precision timing that keeps his dancers safe, all of which someone like Streb employs with ease. But like Nikolais, Pendleton brings beauty, mystery, emotion and uproarious fin to the table, too”. The Philadelphia Inquirer
“… [“Botanica”] traffics in this tension between illusion and reality, apprehension and excitement: as with a Halloween disguise, you know there is a person behind the mask. The fun is in figuring out just how the effect is created”... The New York Times
