Dancing in the Rain

Let me set the stage for this: Last December, Richard Davis (22 years old) was killed in a car accident at the corner of 90th and MacArthur in East Oakland, California. Days later, the half brother of the victim, Darrell Armstead, a popular turf dancer, and his crew, The Turf Feinz, paid an artful tribute at the scene of the crash. Filmmaker Yoram Savion captured the dance that unfolded in the cold winter rain. It was just another RIP video … until the video went viral late this summer, and now again this October. You can find more work by Savion and The Turf Feinz on YouTube (find the videos here). Or head over to this collection on Vimeo
