Ephrat Asherie Dance (EAD) is a dance company rooted in street and social dance. Dedicated to revealing the inherent complexities of these forms, EAD explores the expansive narrative qualities of various street and club styles including breaking, hip hop and house, as a means to tell stories, develop innovative imagery, and find new modes of expression. Ephrat “Bounce” Asherie, a 2016 Bessie Award Winner for Innovative Achievement in Dance, is a New York based B-girl, dancer, and choreographer, having held prestigious residency positions at New York Live Arts and Alvin Ailey Dance Center’s New Directions Choreography Lab. Odeon, an original dance work for seven dancers and four musicians, is the second collaboration between sister and brother team Ephrat and Ehud Asherie. Set to the music of Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, Odeon explores connections between the extended family of street and club dances--including breaking, hip hop, house and vogue-- remix them, pick them apart and challenge them to inhabit unfamiliar spatial and choreographic contexts.
