For this evening of collaborations, the two initiators of the event, Courtney Peix of Contrapose Dance and Marc Miller of the Fort Point Theater Channel, matched 10 choreographers with an artist from another discipline. Quicksilver has been working with visual artist Anne Loyer and will present an excerpt from our latest dance, "Habitus," in which the dancers manipulate Loyer's wearable sculptures in order to explore the idea of networks, both natural and technological. The event is in a non-traditional performance space: come see how a building by day can become a theater by night!
Quicksilver is back from our first international tour to the
Festival St-Ambroise FRINGE de Montréal!
From June 12th to 20th, eight of the Quicksilver dancers gave five performances in Montréal of "Tempest in a Teacup," a collection of five dances from the Quicksilver repertory, to enthusiastic audiences; made friends and connections in the vibrant Montréal dance scene; and experienced intriguing and exciting new dance works and classes.
Excitingly, the show was nominated for the festival's 2014 Frankie Awards in the category MOST OUTSTANDING CHOREOGRAPHY/ CHOREOGRAPHER!
"Tempest in a Teacup" received numerous great reviews – check out what they had to say:

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."
