Event Notes


Embark on a Poetic Journey: assemble by Belle Spirale Dance Projects

Creation, Performance, and Text by Alexis Fletcher

Step into the soul-stirring world of assemble, a full-length solo performance that transcends the boundaries of contemporary dance. Formerly a principal artist with Ballet BC, choreographer Alexis Fletcher invites you to a profound exploration of intergenerational memory, loss, and the resilient capacity of the human spirit to voyage inward.

A Symphony of Emotion

Set against a hauntingly beautiful musical score by Sigur Rós and pianist Dustin O’Halloran, assemble unfolds as a poetic work that delves into the depths of human experience. Fletcher's own writings and reflections contribute to a captivating spoken word soundscape, adding another layer to the rich tapestry of emotions explored in this performance.

Transformative Atmosphere

Embark on Alexis Fletcher’s solo journey and witness the continuous transformation of the atmospheric stage, with lights and projections enhancing the emotional resonance. Immerse yourself in the dreamlike space crafted by visual / set designer and filmmaker Sylvain Senez, complemented by the enchanting lighting designs of Victoria Bell. assemble seamlessly weaves together Fletcher's writings with Senez’s multifaceted set design and films, creating a multi-disciplinary performance that captivates a broad audience through the fusion of film, text, and theatrical design.

Reflective and Intimate

Alexis Fletcher shares, “the intimacy and immediacy of solo performance have always held a unique fascination for me.” assemble invites you to be a part of this fascination, following a single artist's trajectory from beginning to end. The exchange between soloist and audience becomes a profound and personal exploration of shared humanity.

A Feast for the Senses

Described by Stir Magazine as "dreamlike and enigmatic," and "a feat of complex choreography, imagery, lighting, and monumental set pieces coming together,” assemble is a seamless dance of artistic expression. Alexis Fletcher's rigorous contemporary movement language and personal insights into the human experience create an evening that is as evocative as it is thought-provoking.

Weaving Stories Together

In assemble, the solo performer, hailed as "honed and intensely expressive" by Stir, leads you through rich and theatrical stage environments crafted by Quebecois visual designer and filmmaker Sylvain Senez, complemented by the illuminating designs of Victoria Bell. This 60-minute performance is a poetic exploration, encouraging the audience to reflect on their own stories and experiences.

Don't Miss the Weaving of Film, Text, and Design

assemble weaves together layers of text, predominantly written and spoken by Fletcher herself, with Senez’s multifaceted set design and projected films. This multi-disciplinary performance creates a captivating synergy that reaches a broad audience, inviting everyone to partake in the beauty of contemporary dance and the shared human narrative.
