Excerpts of Consider Water at BAAD
"Aftermath": Consider Water Excerpt
Consider Water Dance Film
"Davalois holds audiences in the moment, promising to deliver a bold engagement with their picturesque surroundings through a combination of choreographed entrancing movements and improvisational inspiration."
- The New Jersey Herald
"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."
- Mary Cargill, DanceViewTimes
But as [Davalois Fearon] ventures out more as her own dancemaker, we can see a personal, introspective focus that tempers crowd-pleasing, quirky agility...she puts a quiet, ritualistic beauty in the service of expressing nature's power and preciousness."
- Eva Yaa Asantewaa, InfiniteBody
"...some of the most powerful dance I've encountered recently uses water itself as inspiration. Stephen Petronio dancer Davalois Fearon made an electrifying debut as a choreographer at the Berkeley Arts Festival..."
- Andrew Gilbert, The Mercury News
