We welcome back Andrew Bartee to the Contemporary Art Gallery, who over successive visits in 2017 developed a series of individual performances in response to ideas and themes present within our exhibitions.

Forming part of his year-long residency at Ballet BC, Bartee developed A dance for lonely people out of this research period at CAG. This new performance examines gesture and movement with a particular interest in audience in consideration of permeability of the fourth wall.

Please join us as Bartee performs in our B.C. Binning Gallery, first presented as part of CAG’s collaboration with IKG LIVE 2 Festival, Calgary, January 11 to 13, 2018.


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.
