Ephrat Asherie Dance (EAD) Ephrat Asherie Dance (EAD) is a dance company rooted in street and social dance. Dedicated to revealing the inherent complexities of these forms, EAD explores the expansive narrative qualities of various street and club styles including breaking, hip hop and house, 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 The Apollo Theater, Dixon Place, FiraTarrega, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, La MaMa, LMCC’s River to River Festival, New York Live Arts, Summerstage and The Yard, among others.
