About Beekaa Abraham
Beekaa Abraham is a dancer, choreographer, actor, radio host and martial artist from East Africa, Oromia. Bringing joy through movement has been his passion, and as an immigrant to Hamilton, Ontario, he found art and culture to bridge different communities together. Abraham completed the Performing Arts Preparation program at Sheridan College, leading him to performance and teaching opportunities at several schools and community organizations. He has worked with Defining Movement Dance, The Parahumans (an interdisciplinary Dance Theatre in Hamilton and Toronto) and the Hamilton Fringe Festival, where he created a performance piece with youth from The SPACE Youth Centre. This led him to curate R.I.T.E! (Rhythm Inspiring Transcultural Edutainment) projects, workshops and sessions to engage the community with each other, despite differences in culture and beliefs.
