Black Ballerina is based on Syreeta Hector’s relationship with race and classical ballet. The Canadian dancer explores the identity and the unconscious ways in which we try to blend in. ‘I wanted to examine how the body of minorities is depicted onstage, and how white culture has influenced the relationship I have to my own blackness and indigeneity.’
