Rough Cut: A + A
Choreographers & Performers: Alexis Fletcher, Andrew Bartee
Having spent years practising their craft with high-level company settings, Alexis and Andrew are compelled by duet work as both creators and viewers of dance. Their relationship is the primary starting place for this work, and they are interested in how structure and relationship inform one another. They spent a month in residency at Dance Victoria Studios in September creating this work and exploring its thematic principles and physical vocabulary. They are interested in the ways their conceptual ideas can be distilled and grounded in their bodies and are dedicated to a durational process to create a rich choreographic landscape. The first incarnation of the piece premiered at the Chutzpah! Festival Vancouver in November 2019.
Alexis Fletcher is a dance artist, independent choreographer and producer, and has danced with Ballet BC for the past 14 years. Since its inception in 2015, she has also co-produced and curated a multidisciplinary, grassroots performance series at her home with her husband Sylvain Senez, entitled The Dance Deck. They present original multi-disciplinary works by established professional artists. Andrew Bartee is a dance artist, maker and educator based in Vancouver and Seattle. He has danced, created and toured nationally and internationally with Ballet BC, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Whim W’him, and Kate Wallich + The YC.
