UnderScored by Ephrat Asherie Dance

Commissioned by Works & Process at the Guggenheim for premiere in Fall 2022, UnderScored, is a multi-faceted project that exists as a series of performances, community events and in the creation of an oral history archive of club life. Rooted in the intergenerational stories and memories of NYC underground club heads, UnderScored is created in collaboration with legendary elders from the underground dance community. The cast ranges in age from 26-78 and is inspired by the stories and vibes of several seminal underground parties, including David Mancusoís the Loft, Larry Levanís Paradise Garage and Timmy Regisfordís Shelter.

Building on the intergenerational transference of knowledge and culturally reflective movement that happens night after night on dance floors across the city, UnderScored explores the ever-changing physical and musical landscape of New York Cityís underground dance and music scene. In conjunction with this project, the Jerome Robbins Dance Division at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts will provide a fellowship for Asherie to collect and archive oral histories from elders who are part of the generation of dancers who helped create and usher in NYCís underground dance scene in the 1970s and 1980s.
