Jody Oberfelder Examines the Heart With THROB

Photo by Travis Magee.

Choreographer Jody Oberfelder loves to stretch the boundaries of physicality in her work, often combining an array of highly athletic and expressive choreography with ample doses of humor and humanity. Her latest piece, THROB, comes to the Abrons Arts Center this weekend.  The piece is inspired by the biological workings of the heart, and grew out of conversations with cardiologist Dr. Holly Andersen about the science of  “our most fundamental organ.”
