Davalois Fearon Dance Virtual Theater (DFDVT) presents the Virtual Premiere of “Consider Water” and Time to Talk with Dava as part of Climate Week NYC, September 18th - 22nd. The performance will be available for streaming from now until Midnight EST, September 22nd, via the DFDVT. A “Consider Water” screening will take place on the first day of Climate Week NYC, September 18, 2023, at 7 p.m. EST, followed by an episode of Time to Talk with Dava.
“Consider Water” combines three types of artistic expression – dynamic and fluid dance, original music, and visual arts – and was inspired by domestic and global water issues, such as water scarcity, water contamination, water quality, and water-related natural disasters. Fearon envisioned the multimedia elements of “Consider Water” to create an immersive experience that invites audience members to bring new consideration to one of the earth’s most precious resources. "Fearon's movements are both gymnastic and natural, as the dancers combined crouching and running with sudden bursts of dynamic, leg-thrusting energy, and the work was a haunting reminder that Americans are so lucky to be able to take our water for granted, turning on a tap without effort."- Davalois Fearon's “Consider Water,” Mary Cargill, DanceViewTimes.
An episode of Time to Talk with Dava will immediately follow the premier of “Consider Water,” Time to Talk with Dava is a discursive series that highlights structural racism within dance, academia, and society at large. This series utilizes arts and informed discourse to increase awareness of social, environmental, and academic racial disparities. This will be the fourth Time to Talk with Dava and the Fourth DFDVT virtual premieres of “Time to Talk” in 2020, “For C.J.” in 2021, and “KERNEL” in 2022.
The Davalois Fearon Dance Virtual Theater allows Davalois Fearon Dance to fulfill its mission of pushing artistic and social boundaries while cultivating the next generation of dance artists by providing a platform for the company to share performances, workshops, and discussions.
