BEASTS

Choreographed by Nicole Charlton Goodbrand (2019)

 

Presented as part of the live showing in Skylines Dance and Film Series Calgary, at the Decidedly Jazz Dance Centre Theatre. The work Beasts is centralized around the idea of conscience and morality. It illustrates how humans can quickly justify their cruel and nasty behavior as being a necessity to their survival. The pack mentality is also prevalent in this work, as it further encourage poor and immoral behavior and allows people to hide in a crowd and make decisions based upon the actions of others, sometimes without even realizing it.

 

“A beast does not know that he is a beast, and the nearer a man gets to being

beast, the less he knows it” -George MacDonald
