ASHANI DANCES THIRD ANNUAL CONCERT
ASHANI DANCES will present its third annual concert at the Broadway Performance Hall on June 6 & 7 for two performances. The ten-member ensemble will premiere four new dances; one created by guest choreographer, Eric Rivera and two by artistic director, Iyun Ashani Harrison.

This season marks the first time that ASHANI DANCES will welcome a guest choreographer to create for the company. Eric Rivera premieres "I Am Strength, I Am Life and I Am Woman" inspired by the poetry of Puerto Rican, female poet, Julia De Burgos. Mr. Rivera's dance is created in celebration of the centennial of Ms. De Burgos' writing. His dance captures the strength and sensuality expressed through her poetry that depicts the beauty of Puerto Rican culture and its people.

"Hush" combines neo-classicism and jazz influences in a fast-paced, athletic musical visualization. Structured yet playful, the piece's six movements are highly musical and reveal moments of reverence, humor and irony.

"Rite" is a dark male quartet exploring rites of passage within contemporary male communities. This stark and deeply physical dance focuses on the challenges faced by individuals who are unwilling to participate in gender-based traditions.

"The Leaves Have Fallen", has been previous presented on The Boost Dance Festival and Seattle Dance Project's, Project 7. Ciara McCormack of Seattle Dances describes the duet as, "Leaves is a tough conversation between two people who love and respect each other, who rely on each other, yet have separate paths to follow."
