Ephrat Asherie Dance

“Asherie and her company are a sight anywhere they perform!” —The Boston Globe

Breathtaking, rapid-fire, original. 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, “Odeon” takes a hybrid approach to movement. This work from sister-and-brother team Ephrat and Ehud Asherie delves into what happens when you bring together street and club dances—breaking, hip-hop, house and vogue—and unpack, remix and challenge them to inhabit new spatial and choreographic contexts.

For more than 80 years, the Artist Series has brought the globe's finest jazz, classical, world music and dance performers to Boulder. Many of these performances sell out; order your tickets today to guarantee the best seats.

Ephrat Asherie’s ‘Odeon’ at The Pillow is extraordinary

“Odeon” is real, honest and breathtaking. It is beautifully crafted — unique movement gently arranged in traditional ways, the use of unison juxtaposed with mind-blowing solos, silence punctuating dense sound.
