"Unknown Marrow" will be Syreeta's second solo performance. It will explore the influence of ancestry, landscape, and language that is within a dancer's blood memory. Through this short dance film Syreeta will investigate the complicated relationship between her ancestors in Nova Scotia as well as examine the fragility and resilience of these peoples. Within the work, she will question the various ways we cope with difficult histories and consider the way we share information about these complex lineages.
This multi-year project will culminate in the production of both scholarly publications in academic journals and a full length solo work.
