Ephrat Asherie Dance Performance
October 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$30
Ephrat Asherie Dance + Workshop
Saturday, October 5th | 7:00pm | $30.00
Odeon, an original dance work for seven dancers is the second collaboration between sister and brother team Ephrat and Ehud Asherie (choreographer and musical director, respectively). Set to the music of Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, known for mixing early 20th century romantic music with samba and other popular Afro-Brazilian rhythms, this work takes a hybrid approach to movement.
Odeon delves into what happens when you bring together 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.
Workshop October 4, 6pm included in Performance ticket purchase.
“The work is worthy of a scholarly exposition of the movement and musical resources, but let me simply state that “Odeon” is real, honest and breathtaking.”
— Liz Thompson, Berkshire Edge
“Just when you thought you knew something about dance, along comes Ephrat Asherie to blow that all to smithereens.”
— Carolyn and Eli Newberger, Berkshire Edge
