Artist Statement

It was in D.C. that Kevin began his journey as a teaching artist. It has long been his belief that being an active professional in the acting field enriches his teaching, and vice versa. Theatre is a place where we can truly be ourselves by pretending to be someone else. D.C. was also the beginning of his passion to decolonize theatre and make it accessible to students of all ages. Theatre is for everyone, and Kevin’s work as a teaching artist exemplifies this idea. Kevin strives to make his classes a safe space where participants can take risks and explore within the context of a positive and affirming community. Theatre offers us a chance to learn how to learn about ourselves. Social emotional learning is of paramount importance in Kevin’s work as a teaching artist. His residencies use the physical work of character creation and the mental work of collaborating to create new theatrical experiences. In the past, he has used techniques of slam poetry, journaling, Shakespeare, literature, and writing prompts to forge devised theatre pieces in collaboration with his students. Each class yields a new, never before seen piece of theatre that is completely unique to each cohort. His classes and residencies can also be adapted to enrich a school’s curriculum. In these classes, students learn how to collaborate and communicate with their peers, how to create dynamic characters with their bodies, and learn the tools of the trade for actors.
