“KERNEL,” a collaborative project between Davalois Fearon Dance, Mike McGinnis, Ayanna Heaven, and Careitha Davis, is the second solo of “Finding Herstory” a series of solos inspired by Africanist forms such as reggae and dancehall that have contributed to not only my establishment as an artist but to the entire American dance landscape. “KERNEL” seeks to celebrate Caribbean dance and the Caribbean culture present in Prospect Park Lefferts Garden. This project will be the second of such public performances, the first being the performance of Finding Herstory as a part of Music and Dance At Parkside Plaza presented by Prospect Park Lefferts Garden Arts at Parkside Plaza.
