Artistic Direction and Concept: Davalois Fearon Choreography: Davalois Fearon in Collaboration with Keely Garfield Dancers: Davalois Fearon and Keely Garfield Costume: Keely Garfield Running Time: 12 mins
Longing Belonging uses Davalois Fearon and Keely Garfield’s shared artistic and personal experiences to explore the complex reality of raising biracial children and having a multi-ethnic cultural heritage. It was commissioned solo as a part of Gibney’s Solo for Solo series created and curated by Eva Yaa Asantewaa featuring commissioned solos made by developing choreographers expressly for veteran performers over the course of a three-month residency. The performers also mentor the choreographers through a one-on-one collaborative process that serves to broaden and deepen the art. Join us for a showing of three works-in-progress by Sydnie L. Mosley with Dyane Harvey, Jessica Chen with Ana “Rokafella” Garcia, and Davalois Fearon with Keely Garfield, followed by a talkback session.
