We're excited to announce Quicksilver Dance's fourth annual performance at MIT's architectural wonder, Simmons Hall! Our nine extraordinary dancers will present an ever-moving poem that evokes the uncertainty of an ever-changing world and the eternal evolution of community in The Constant Effort of Beginning; explore the hazy space of our inner lives in On The Threshold of Memory; and entrance you with a new dance/film collaboration with New York City-based video artist Sarah Outhwaite; and more favorites from the Quicksilver repertoire.

Breaking news! Quicksilver Dance is going on our first international tour – to the Montreal Fringe Festival! Nine of the Quicksilver dancers will be giving seven, 45-minute concerts in Montreal this June. Check back here for more info!
If you're interested in specifically supporting the tour, please contact Mariah Steele at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested in dance and peacebuilding?
Mariah is available to give lectures about using dance in peacebuilding, based on her thesis from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. A successful guest lecture at Emerson College was described by the professor as "Fascinating, well-delivered and compelling because it brings out the hidden power of dance." Please email email@example.com with inquiries.
Want to commission a dance?
You can join in Quicksilver's creative process while supporting the dancers by commissioning a dance or a dance-on-film! We'll work closely with you to create a unique collaboration. The dance-on-film also makes a wonderful, memorable gift for anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions. Please enjoy our first dance-on-film, commissioned in 2012; and contact us for more information.
