(Work in Progress)
In its early phase of investigation, this original dance work is set to the music of Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth. Nazareth composed music from the 1870s to the 1930s and was known for mixing European harmonies with African rhythms, a sort of hybrid of European romanticism and samba. Similarly, this work takes a hybrid approach to movement as it explores various street and club styles. Odeon can be seen as a work in progress in “Shared Evening: Regina Nejman | Ephrat Asherie” as part of the La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival from June 2 - 4. Buy tickets here!
Odeon will premiere as an evening-length work in the summer of 2018 at the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival.
