Alexandra Elliott – Iceland Performing Arts Residency 2016

Born and raised in Winnipeg Alexandra Elliott is a dedicated contemporary dance artist, whose dances have been produced in Winnipeg, New York, Toronto, and Edmonton. Alexandra remains humble with a commitment to learn from her seniors and peers. She cycles to her studio every week, year round, to make work that is physically demanding and emotionally charged, and not one day is taken for granted. Alexandra looks forward to a one-month residency in Iceland this July.

Residency Project

Alexandra recently spent two weeks with Tedd Robinson, one of Canada’s most prolific dance artists and mentors. After this intensive study in solo creation she is looking forward to working at the Nes Residency in Iceland, focusing on her practice and engaging with other artists from around the world. Alexandra hopes to come away with a strong new work and lasting collaborative relationships.
