"The Book of Esther" and Other Works

  • The Gordon Center for Performing Arts

Presented in partnership with The Associated Pomegranate Society

With elegant energy and fluid choreography by Ariel Grossman, Ariel Rivka Dance’s The Book of Esther investigates, through emotionally driven movement, the biblical stories of Queen Vashti and Queen Esther, epitomizing the Jewish traditions of community, collaboration, and support. Featuring a strong and vibrant all-female cast and a distinctive melodic musical score by Grossman’s husband, David Homan, this beautiful dance adaptation of the well-known Purim story wrestles with issues women have faced in both historical and modern times.

Ariel Rivka Dance (ARD) shares an afternoon of its repertoire. The work explores emotionally driven movement with underlying currents of technique and structure. In this all-female contemporary dance company, each of the eight women brings a particular perspective and interpretation of the choreography resulting in a stunning collaboration.

Collaboration and accessibility are the heart of ARD, and we produce shows that incorporate various styles of dance and original music by composer David Homan, exposing our audiences to quality artistry in an inviting way.
