Time to Talk (Donation-based ticketing $0-$1000)
Time to Talk is a multimedia dance piece rooted in research on American history, dance history, racial identity formation, and systemic racism. It is inspired by Davalois Fearon's own experience of oppression and racial bias within academia that she encountered in 2015. Dynamic fluid dance, live music, poetry, and visual art are used as tools to bring attention to inequalities within the dance field and society at large. Time to Talk aims to encourage audience members to question how they may knowingly or unknowingly contribute to maintaining social norms that support the status quo of inequity.
