Alexis Fletcher was raised on Vancouver Island where she received her early training before attending Arts Umbrella’s Graduate Program. Alexis was a member of Arts Umbrella’s Student Company and attended Springboard Danse Montreal. After graduating in 2005, she joined Ballet BC, where she has been fortunate to work with creative visionaries such as Crystal Pite, Emily Molnar, John Alleyne, Johan Inger, Stijn Celis, Jacopo Godani, Walter Matteini, Fernando Hernando Magadan, Serge Bennathan, Gioconda Barbuto, and Jorma Elo among many others. Independently she has worked collaboratively with creators such as Sidra Bell, James Gnam, Simone Orlando, Rob Kitsos and Wen Wei Wang. As well as beginning to choreograph, she has co-created a multidisciplinary performance space with her husband at their home in Vancouver. They also run a successful Bed and Breakfast business together.
Alexis is 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 her own physical practice and choreographic interests. She believes that dance is a unique vehicle with which to share, research and discuss our collective humanity. Alexis is in her 13th season with Ballet BC.
