Ephrat Asherie Dance

Ephrat Asherie Dance (EAD) is a dance company rooted in African American and Latinx street and club dances. Dedicated to exploring the inherent complexities of these dances, EAD investigates the expansive narrative qualities of various vernacular forms including breaking, hiphop, house and vogue, as a means to tell stories, develop innovative imagery, and find new modes of expression. EAD’s first evening-length work, A Single Ride, earned two Bessie nominations in 2013 for Outstanding Emerging Choreographer and Outstanding Sound Design by Marty Beller. The company has presented work at New York City Center, Art Power! at UCSan Diego, The Apollo Theater, Columbia College, Dixon Place, Fira Tarrega, Works & Process at the Guggenheim, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Joyce Theater, La MaMa, New York LiveArts, River to River Festival, Spoleto Festival USA, Summerstage NYC, and The Yard, among others.
