Meet BARETEETH — our Artists-in-Residence for 2017

March 30, 2017

Bartram’s Garden is pleased to welcome BARETEETH as its Artists-in-Residence this year. Bareteeth is a multi-disciplinary and experimental dance theater collective that pushes on pre-prescribed boundaries concerning identity, survival, and transcendence.

The group has received a grant from Mural Arts Philadelphia and ArtPlace America to research a site-specific art project here at Bartram’s Garden. Their project is part of the SWRoots initiative, which seeks to build connections between the garden and its Southwest Philadelphia neighbors through arts and culture. The neighborhood around Bartram’s Garden will be a focus of their work in addition to the 45-acre garden itself.

Says member Althea Baird, “We use movement as a metaphor and framework for interacting with sites, like Bartram’s Garden. This isn’t traditional dance — we want to change the way we move together and interact with both institutional systems and environments.”
