      Vancouver dance fans might want to log on to a free Facebook Live event this Thursday (October 8) at 7 pm.

      That's when the new livestream series #DANCEFORTH will present Feasting on Famine, a dance piece by Vancouver-based Shay Kuebler, in partnership with the Dance Centre.

      "Feasting on Famine looks to explore themes on obsession, addiction, commodification and corporatization," reads a press release. "Using health-fitness and bodybuilding culture as a lens, Feasting on Famine explores how corporations have altered, created and monetized the industries of 'success' and 'health'.

      "The human being becomes both the proponent and the dependent of big business. The body becomes a corporation where body-fat, water, calories and muscle mass are the measures for profit and loss margins. Where gains and profits are paramount, success is attained at any and all costs."
