A Dog Song for Caged Birds
Presented at Dancing in Place 2016
Rimbun Dahan, Kuang, Malaysia
This piece explores the privileges and inhibition of movement. It is inspired by the humans I have met recently - from Palestine, the Ukraine, and elsewhere - who follow their passions in the midst of social and political contexts that seek to contain, control, or disappear them. This piece is a tribute to human perseverance in the midst of immense struggle.
Choreography, performance and sound score by Daniel Bear Davis (USA)
