We are thrilled to celebrate our fifth anniversary season! The six dances and one dance-on-film in "Choose Your Own Mythology" explore interdependent relationships — between people, arts and the environment — raising questions about the classic and modern myths that shape how we see the world. The show features collaborations with two Boston-based artists: music by composer Ryan Edwards and an interactive sculpture designed by visual artist Anne Loyer.

Help support the show!

We're raising $4,500 on Indiegogo to support the dancers in Choose Your Own Mythology! Every dollar you give goes directly to the artists involved in bringing the show to life. Click on the sidebar above to donate and learn more about the project.

This year we are excited to offer a wonderful perk for donations of $100 or above: a limited edition Quicksilver Dance 5th Anniversary Photobook, which documents our dances and growth in professional photographs.

We are also thrilled that this year, all donations to our Indiegogo Campaign are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law, due to our fiscal sponsorship by Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. So if you are looking for a good cause, we hope you will support locally-grown, organic modern dance in Cambridge, MA.

If you would like to donate by check, please make your check out to Fractured Atlas and mail it to:

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 quicksilverdance@gmail.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 our second dance-on-film, commissioned in 2013; and contact us for more information.

Mariah Steele/Quicksilver Dance is a modern dance company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts with roots in New York City, directed by choreographer Mariah Steele. Using anthropological inquiry and artistic exploration, our dances delve into contemporary and timeless issues to inspire reflection and imagination and to spark new perspectives and cross-cultural dialogue.
