RIVER TO RIVER FESTIVAL: "Riff this, Riff that"
Ephrat & Ehud Asherie
June 20–21 brings Riff this, Riff that, a first-time collaboration between dancer/choreographer Ephrat Asherie and her brother, jazz pianist and composer Ehud Asherie, to The Atrium Plaza at 180 Maiden Lane. Using movement and live music, the piece explores the connections between jazz and hip-hop and the myriad rhythms—both musical and motional—that continue to exist and expand within and around the two forms.
“The slight, sinewy Asherie (aka Bounce) blew the audience away with her handsomely-arranged and expert breaking, club dancing and vogueing. Simply put, it’s great to see a woman completely own the floor: not just be capable of these dance styles but actually nail every challenge of timing, accuracy of detail, flow and theatrical presentation that she has set for herself.” – infinitebody.blogspot.com, Eva Yaa Asantewaa
