“Up/right” will be a multi-disciplinary solo dance piece that features Fearon's “gymnastic and natural” choreography (Mary Cargill, DanceViewTimes). It aims to integrate the research she has been doing around non-western African diasporic forms and her professional concert dance career as a Masters's level academic concert-trained artist. “Up/right” is the third solo of the “Finding Herstory” solo series project, which looks at how cross-cultural movements, mainly stemming from the African diaspora, play a role in the development of contemporary dance and celebrate the forms that helped build American dance – often without acknowledgment or credit.
