Quicksilver Dance presents:

14 Variations - This duet is a comic deconstruction of ballroom dances, set to varying renditions of Bela Bartok’s “Silk Dance” in his suite of Romanian Folk Dances.

Habitus - “Habitus” explores the idea of interdependence on both a physical and metaphorical level in relationship to our environments, both natural and man-made. Accompanied by a music and text soundscape by Boston-based composer Ryan Edwards, the five dancers come together and fall apart in a constantly moving network of inter-relationships.
Galatea’s Awakening - This duet re-imagines Ovid's myth of Pygmalion. What happens after Pygmalion's beautiful statue comes to life? Surely not everything went smoothly as Galatea became a person with her own thoughts, feelings and desires separate from, and sometimes in contradiction to, Pygmalion's ideas. The dance includes acrobatic partnering and a tale of discovering the real people beneath our own expectations of those we love.

2015 funding for the performance series is generously provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, with support from the Boston Dance Alliance.
