Upcoming Events!

Mariah Steele
By Caitlin Meehan

This fall, I have been fortunate to work with Mariah Steele in part of her body of work for the Boston Center for the Arts Dance Residency. Mariah Steele/Quicksilver Dance will be presenting Epoch Tales, a new work combining dance and science to explore the process of evolution. Echoing the movement of early life-forms, the work will bring science to life by illuminating how the world may have moved in different evolutionary epochs. Other repertory featured will include a playful jaunt into the world of Frank Sinatra and an investigation into the cultural history of tea. I am included in the Frank Sinatra piece, a duet about two sisters which has been great fun to learn thus far. I'm looking forward to performing it!

The details: Epoch Tales will be performed at the Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St., Boston MA 02116.  
Performances are Friday, November 16 at 8pm and Saturday, November 17 at 3pm and 8pm.

Tickets are $15 general admission and $12 for BDA members. 
They are available online at Boston Theatre Scene or by calling the box office at 617-933-8600.

Dance for PD
by Nicole Harris

Many of you have heard me talk about the Dance for PD Program run by David Leventhal and the Mark Morris Dance Group.  After my own medical adventures of the past year or so I am looking forward to beginning a dance class for students with Parkinson's here at Monkeyhouse.  If you don't know anything about the program, please take a minute to check them out.  There is a really wonderful video that I recommend you watch!

For those of you in the New York area, first, Monkeyhouse sends our love and support your way as you deal with the aftermath of Sandy.  I hope you are all safe and dry and able to begin putting your lives back together.  If you need a little something to make your day brighter, head over to check out Dance for PD in Performance!  I can't imagine anything more uplifting than watching these amazing people.  Tickets are free but you have to reserve your spot so do it today!
Sunday, November 11@3pm
