An invitation to question the perspectives of our “inclusive” nation, as a dancer examines the dualities of their identity and otherness.
Syreeta Hector shares her experience of being a mixed race (Indigenous, African Canadian, and French) female spending time on the outskirts of New Brunswick and rural North Carolina. An examination of her relationship to the classical ballet form unfolds through movement, storytelling and an original score, as Syreeta questions whether it was unconscious systemic racism that led her to practice dance.
Created and performed by Syreeta Hector; Movement Dramaturgy by Seika Boye; Outside Eye - J. Adam Brown; Set Design by Wesley Mckenzie; Musical Composition by Zarnoosh Bilimoria
