Quicksilver Dance, recently relocated from Boston, MA, presents its sixth overall season, and first in the Bay Area, with a striking new show: “The Memory Closet.” Featuring four dances and one interactive installation, “The Memory Closet” digs deep into personal and collective histories to unearth truths that have been stashed away in society’s subconscious.

On the historical side, “Caesar and Cleopatra” re-imagines the epic couple as equals in the contemporary world; the text-and-movement solo “No Sugar, Please” explores the contrasting peace and violence that surrounds the cultural history of global tea practices; and “14 Variations” comically deconstructs ballroom dances to question our notions of class. Meanwhile, the premiere of “Fledglings” explores the personal side as the cast examines their relationships with the idea of ‘home.’ Finally, the eponymous installation with live performance “The Memory Closet” explores how the history of fashion has both empowered and oppressed women — and devastated the environment.
