Ephrat Asherie Dance


February 7 – 8, 2020
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents
Philadelphia Debut // Annenberg Center Debut // Philadelphia Premiere

Ephrat Asherie is a "bona fide b-girl" (The Boston Globe). She brings her street and social dance company to Philadelphia for the first time to perform Odeon, a high-octane, full-length work set to the music of composer Ernesto Nazareth, played live. A recent Bessie and Dance Magazine award winner, Asherie layers breaking, hip hop, house and vogue to a rich score melding classical Romantic music with Afro-Brazilian rhythms. This thrilling dance and music remix is truly "paving the way for something new." (The New York Times)
