Kevin Jesuino is a Portuguese-Canadian queer multi-disciplinary performer, facilitator, activist, somatic practitioner, movement arts coach, and arts educator. His work is oftentimes collaborative, site-specific, participatory, and process-oriented. His practice explores relationality, the stories within our bodies, and the magical realism that manifests itself in LGBTQ+ communities and the natural world. He draws from research in queer performance, ecology/biology, somatics, and site adaptive/responsive performance. His community-embedded projects engage participants in performative actions, discussions, creative interventions, activations, and other forms of organizing.

Kevin Jesuino 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 social action through performance and visual art around climate justice and the ecological crisis. His current research centers around issues of ecology, food security, relational aesthetics, and building eco-somatic empathy.

Kevin Jesuino completed his Theatre Arts diploma at MacEwan University (with honours) and his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts at the University of British Columbia - Okanagan (Governor General's Award). He is a founding Fellow of the Trico Changemaker Studio Artist-as-Changemaker program. He also is a certified Tamalpa Life/Art Process® ​Teaching Graduate, 200HR Yoga Instructor, and has completed his Permaculture Design Certificate with Verge Permaculture.
