Come Be A Part Of Our Creative Process!
Informal Showing with Facilitated Audience Feedback Discussion
Saturday, December 14
Simmons Hall at MIT: 229 Vassar Street, Cambridge, MA
The theme of Quicksilver's Fall Season is "Taking Time." Thus, rather than push a new piece to be ready for a performance as we usually do, we are taking the time to let a new dance unfold on its own time. This theme also allows time for YOU to be part of the process by sharing your thoughts about the dance in its infancy through a Facilitated Feedback Discussion. Your insights and thoughts will be incorporated as we continue the dance in the winter in preparation for our annual April performance, when you will be able to see the dance again in its young adulthood!
Free of charge!

Come invigorate your week with Monday Morning Modern with Mariah! Each class will include a thorough warm-up (floor & standing) designed to foster expanded range of motion and efficiency of movement, followed by center movement phrases in Mariah's distinctive style. Both warm-ups and center work will include elements of O'Donnell and Limon techniques, as well as the Bartenieff Fundamentals, developmental movement patterns and other somatic practices, to develop alignment, coordination, strength and flexibility. Phrase work is technical, but organic and easy on the body, with a focus on theatricality, subtlety, detail and creative expression. All levels of experience are welcome.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
