Andrew Bartee

A dance for lonely people

Illingworth Kerr Gallery, Calgary

A gallery space with people lined against the wall watching one person perform at the center. The performer is wearing all yellow clothes and is holding a dance pose.

Following on from the series of individual performances made at CAG during autumn-winter 2017, Ballet BC dancer, Andrew Bartee will present a performance that draws together this period of research examining gesture and movement with a particular interest in audience in consideration of permeability of the fourth wall as a conversation between art and each other.


Andrew Bartee, from Everett, Washington, joined Ballet BC in 2014 and was the Artist in Residence for the 17/18 season. He studied on scholarship at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School in Seattle, WA and attended summer courses at the School of American Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and the Pacific Northwest Ballet School. He was also the first recipient of the Fleming Halby exchange with the Royal Danish Ballet, a 2007 Princess Grace Award, and was one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2015.
