Danced by Marie-Hélène Bellavance, this work evokes the subsisting part of what has been lost as an entity with an existence of its own. Accompanied by George-Nicolas Tremblay, who personifies the rupture in abstract form, a woman without legs gradually discovers her dance. In the flow of her mastery of the movements, her accompanist embodies the external force that propels her, without her prostheses, towards a change of reality.

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. The 2019 performance of
an earlier version of Black Ballerina was nominated for a Dora Mavor Moore Award. Performed by Hector, Black Ballerina brings an unbridled energy to the stage.
