Quicksilver Dance is a modern dance company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, directed by choreographer Mariah Steele. Using anthropological inquiry and artistic exploration, their dances delve into contemporary and timeless issues to inspire reflection and imagination and to spark new perspectives and cross-cultural dialogue.
Inspired by her Anthropology and Dance studies at Princeton, Mariah traveled to Sri Lanka to immerse herself in traditional Kandyan dance, and wrote her anthropology thesis about the experience. She went on to perform professionally in New York City and Boston, where she has danced for Sokolow Now!, the Anna Sokolow archival company, Nell Breyer, Sara Smith and currently performs with Rebecca Rice Dance. Recent awards include a Dance Residency at the Boston Center for the Arts in Fall 2012 and a Choreographer’s Fellowship at Summer Stages Dance Festival at Concord Academy in July 2012. Currently, Mariah teaches modern dance and dance history at Endicott College in Beverly, MA.
