Kevin Jesuino is a Portuguese-Canadian queer:
applied theatre/dance/visual arts facilitator
placemaking & art/theatre-for-social change educator
RYT® 200 yoga & mindfulness instructor
Tamalpa Life/Art Process® coach/ educator
His work is oftentimes collaborative, site-specific, participatory, and process-oriented. His practice explores relationality, the body and the transformative ability of the arts.
He draws from research in queer performance, deep ecology, antifragility and modes of being together in his solo performance work.
His community-embedded projects engage participants in performative actions, discussions, creative interventions, activations and other forms of organizing.
He is the Co-Artistic Director of TRAction, a dynamic collective of interdisciplinary artists who engage communities in art-making to address issues of climate justice. Besides developing artistic projects under this group, he is also passionate about facilitating applied theatre (Playback/Forum Theatre) conversations around climate justice and the ecological crisis.
As a somatic practitioner, Kevin also coaches individuals and groups in somatic/body sensing based on the Tamalpa Life/Art Process® which integrates the wisdom of the body as expressed through movement, dance, and imagination to explore and deepen our relationship to psychological life, to social issues, and to creativity itself. He has a particular interest in supporting the needs of LGBTQ+ folx.
