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)


Additional Text by Summar Taha, Hala Sweidan, and Yousef Aref Sbeih


Double Bass Music by Andy Benz - Tree Dub from Flowing in Circles
