Ephrat Asherie Dance
Choreographer Ephrat Asherie brings a high-energy, hybrid work to the Joyce that layers breaking, hip-hop, house, and vogue. With musical direction by jazz pianist Ehud Asherie, Odeon reimagines signature compositions of 20th-century Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, who is noted for melding classical music with Afro-Brazilian rhythms. Featuring a group of dynamic dancers and accompanied by live music, Odeon brings together various elements of the extended family of street and club dances, creating a world all of its own.
