Ephrat Asherie Dance
About Ephrat Asherie Dance
Led by The Boston Globe’s “bona fide b-girl,” Ephrat Asherie Dance performs the world premiere of Odeon, a high-energy, hybrid hip-hop work set to and inspired by the music of early 20th century Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, played live.
2016 New York Dance and Performance (“Bessie”) Award recipient, Ephrat “Bounce” Asherie layers breaking, hip-hop, house, and vogue to the rich sounds of Nazareth’s buoyant score, which melds classical romantic music with popular Afro-Brazilian rhythms.

On July 9, 1942, the Ted Shawn Theatre, the first theatre in the United States designed specifically for dance, opened its doors. Architect Joseph Franz, who also built The Music Shed at Tanglewood, had agreed with Shawn that the theatre exterior must harmonize with the existing farmhouse and barns.
