Alexis Fletcher

A dance artist, creator, and producer, I have danced with Ballet BC for 14 years and subsequently have been a guest artist and Artist in Residence. Now independent, I hold the position of Artist in Residence at Vancouver’s Chutzpah! Festival, Dance Victoria, and Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. I am also a member of the Creative Hub at Presentation House Theatre. My creations have been supported by Dancing on the Edge, InFrinGing Festival, New Works, Vernon Performing Arts Centre, The Gordon Smith Foundation, BC Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts and Dance Victoria.

With Ballet BC I have had the opportunity to work with world-renowned choreographers and designers, have been involved in numerous creative collaborations where I have worked closely alongside choreographers to create their movement. These creative visionaries include Crystal Pite, Emily Molnar, Johan Inger, Stijn Celis, Jacopo Godani, Medhi Walerski, Fernando Hernando Magadan, Serge Bennathan, Gioconda Barbuto, John Alleyne, Cayetano Soto and Jorma Elo among others. I have also been honoured to interpret existing works by leading voices such as Martha Graham, Twyla Tharp, William Forsythe, Sharon Eyal and Ohan Naharin. After Emily Molnar took over directorship in 2009, I was privileged to be one of the core group of dancers who, with her, were part of building Ballet BC into the renowned creation-based company it is today, sharing our work on world stages including Sadler’s Wells, Jacob’s Pillow, Canada’s National Arts Centre, The Joyce Theatre in New York, BAM, Movimentos Festival, Teatre Grec, among many others.

Independently I have worked collaboratively with creators such as Sidra Bell, James Gnam, Simone Orlando, Rob Kitsos, Wen Wei Wang, Vanessa Goodman and Ne. Sans Opera and Dance. I am thrilled to be joining zoe|juniper this season as a performer and collaborator for The Other Shore.

As a producer, I have co-created a multidisciplinary performance space and series with my husband, Sylvain Senez, at our home in Vancouver. On our outdoor stage we curate and present annual performance events, entitled The Dance Deck. This series has been running since 2015. (
We also host art film nights inside our house as a way of supporting independent filmmakers.

As a dance artist I am fascinated by how exploring the movement potential of the human body becomes a way of accessing the inner landscapes of our spirits and psyches, and this is the primary motivation behind my own physical practice and choreographic interests. I believe that dance is a unique vehicle with which to share, research, and discuss our humanity.

I acknowledge, with gratitude, my privilege to be working and creating on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples: Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
