Lunch & Learn:
A Dancer’s Story of Self-Reinvention
with Steven Caras
(A Kravis Center Cultural Society Event)
(ArtSmart Continuing Arts Education)
The Emmy Award-winning public television documentary Steven Caras: See Them Dance recounted a boy’s daring journey at a time when men pursuing dance rarely escaped unscathed. Filmmaker Deborah Novak touches on this, leading to Caras’ extraordinary transition from being the youngest male dancer in Balanchine’s New York City Ballet to becoming its ultimate image maker as one of the leading dance photographers of all time. In fact, the 2012 documentary was named “Best Television Film” of the year at the Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival.
In Survival Instinct, Steven Caras boldly picks up where the documentary leaves off—revealing in even more intimate detail his glorious milestones, occasional setbacks, and personal struggles with sexuality. Inspiring, profoundly moving, and wickedly funny, Caras will also share stunning images of some of the greatest dancers the world has ever known.
