Beast A La Mode
York University Department of Dance faculty member Syreeta Hector will present new choreography entitled Beast A la Mode at the Fleck Dance Theatre, Harbourfront Centre between Nov 2-5th as part of the ProArteDance Fall Season.
Beast A La Mode by Syreeta Hector examines the powerful influence the environment has over identity, aspects of ourselves that are revealed or concealed depending on different locales and social context. Beast A La Mode investigates the uneasy contradictions of character we develop in order to survive everyday life, and highlights our essential need to compete depending on circumstance. Beast A La Mode was created through the Creative Encounters Program with ProArteDanza
This piece was originally workshopped through the Creative Encounters Residency Program, and will premiere in the ProArte fall season at the Fleck Dance Theatre Harbourfront Centre from November 2nd- November 5th.
