About Kevin

Kevin O’Connor, MFA, is a multidisciplinary artist working as a choreographer, dancer, improviser, circus artist and installation artist. He is involved in a decade long artistic collaboration with Ruth Douthwright and Billy Jack exploring un/settling participatory performances within watersheds in Ontario. He is also currently working with NAKA dance in Oakland exploring the intersection of race and gentrification in the Bay Area. His attentional practices have recently been made different by working as a biodynamic cranial sacral practitioner, learning alongside Inuit hunting families on Baffin Island, and joining the round dance protests during the Indigenous uprising called Idle No More. He is currently completing a PhD in Performance Studies where he is researching anatomies, body performance capacities and imaginations, environmental activism and unsettling practices, and community-based performances.
