Third Grade Class Visits MWPAI
Students from grade 3 took a field trip to Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute to see a special exhibit of kimonos designed by Japanese artist Itchiku Kubota. After he was released from a prisoner of war camp in Siberia, he spent the majority of his time inventing a new dying technique that was used in his world renowned fabric images. The images on the kimonos show his beautiful perspective on the world despite having lived through such tragedy. While at the museum, students learned the history behind the kimonos in contrast to contemporary art work of today, and created haikus and various sketches in response to the exhibit. It was a wonderful interdisciplinary project.

Ephrat Asherie Dance Performs at Hamilton College - Saturday, October 6, 7:30 pm

Hamilton College Performing Arts presents Ephrat Asherie Dance in a new work, Odeon, on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 7:30 pm in Wellin Hall, Schambach Center.

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.

Odeon, an original dance work for seven dancers and four musicians, is the second collaboration between sister and brother team Ephrat and Ehud Asherie (choreographer and musical director, respectively). Set to the music of Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, known for mixing early 20th century romantic music with samba and other popular Afro-Brazilian rhythms, this work takes a hybrid approach to movement. Odeon delves into what happens when you bring together the extended family of street and club dances--including breaking, hip hop, house and vogue-- remix them, pick them apart and challenge them to inhabit unfamiliar spatial and choreographic contexts.

The Performing Arts Series is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. This performance was made possible, in part, by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Tickets for this event are $20 for adults, $15 for senior citizens, and $5 for students. All seating is general admission. Tickets are available by calling the box office at (315) 859-4331 or visiting www.hamilton.edu/performingarts.
