Black Ballerina
Friday, November 27 @7pm at
Choreographed and performed by Syreeta Hector
Livestream directed by Barbara Willis Sweete

Based on Syreeta Hector’s relationship to race, and her experiences in classical ballet, Black Ballerina is a powerful exploration of the nuances within one’s identity, and the unconscious ways that we all try to fit in. Performed by Hector, Black Ballerina brings an unbridled energy to the inaugural show of Citadel LIVE. The 2019 performance of an earlier version of Black Ballerina was nominated for a Dora Mavor Moore Award.
