A new generation of activist dance artists has arisen in the American black community, seeking to address unfolding real-world events. Hip-hop veterans The Wondertwins (Billy and Bobby McClain) and Jamaican- American choreographer Davalois Fearon explore and provoke searing questions about being black – about dancing black – in today’s America.
Davalois Fearon is passionate about creating work that push both artistic and social boundaries. Her choreography is often driven by the aim to confront difficult issues and prompt contemplation. Multimedia elements are used to carry audiences on a journey of ideas. Time to Talk is a dance theater piece that utilizes movement, live music, spoken word, projection art, and dialogue to call attention to racial inequalities within American concert dance and society at large.
