BAAD!ASS WOMEN FESTIVAL 2019: Davalois Fearon presents "For CJ"
BAAD! Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance
For C.J. is dedicated to Artistic Director Davalois Fearon’s nephew C.J., who was the victim of a fatal asthma attack in 2017. It uses nature to explore themes of loss and remembrance. For C.J. celebrates C.J.’s life by telling his story through Fearon’s fluid yet assertive movement vocabulary, with original music by multi-reedist Mike McGinnis, wearable sculpture, costume, and makeup designed by interdisciplinary artist Jasmine Murrell and set design by performer and visual artist Myssi Robinson.
For C.J. incorporates aspects of As Above, As Below, a site-specific piece created in dialogue with Gordon Matta-Clark’s 1971 performance Tree Dance, as well as the inclusion of alchemic philosophy in both artists’ conceptual processes commissioned by the Bronx Music as part of the BxMA Co-Lab dance series.
