“The essence of New York’s underground dance scene is a dynamic energy that calls you into the cipher to join in the exchange between dancers. When creating work, I often draw from my freestyle background to manipulate rhythms, timing, movement qualities, shapes and gestures. My intention, however, is not to recreate the interaction and energy of the underground scene on stage, for that is impossible to replicate, but rather to explore a choreographic structure that is equally as complex and cohesive as the masterful improvisation of a single underground dancer.” – Ephrat Asherie
