Intergenerational Memories of New York City Club Dancers with Ephrat Asherie 

Monday, November 7, 7 pm, Bruno Walter Auditorium 

In conjunction with the premiere of UNDERSCORED, choreographer Ephrat Asherie is working with the Jerome Robbins Dance Division to collect and archive oral histories from elders who helped create and usher in NYC’s underground dance scene in the 1970s and 1980s. In this program, legendary elders from the underground dance community will share their stories in conversation with Asherie.
