For C.J. is a work in progress by her company Davalois Fearon Dance dedicated to Fearon’s nephew C.J. who died from an asthma attack in 2017. Using live music, movement, and visual art, For C.J. will celebrate C.J.’s life while raising awareness about asthma and “systemic medical and environmental negligence.”
Fearon will create a new work for the Purchase Dance Company in the spring of 2020.
