"I love to move. I love to watch people move: running down the street, standing silently on stage, breathing in a Pilates class. In any capacity. And it's the space between the action that excites me. Transitions are compelling, always changing, rich with complexity and stripped of expectations. Dance is that subtle thing that happens in the space between the kicks and turns; it's the constant negotiation of weight, time and presence." –Bevin Poole
Bevin completed her BFA in Dance and English Literature at Simon Fraser University in 2007. She has been a company member with Dancers Dancing since 2008, appearing in works by Judith Garay, Simone Orlando and Serge Bennathan. As an independent artist, Bevin has had the pleasure of collaborating and performing with Tara Cheyenne Performance, The Plastic Orchid Factory, Action at a Distance, The Contingency Plan, Chick Snipper, Helen Walkley, MACHiNENOiSY, Co. Erasga, Desiree Dunbar, Nicole Mion, Vancouver Opera and has presented choreography in 12 Minutes Max and Dancing on the Edge.
Most recently, Bevin has joined forces with three other Vancouver artists to create Vancouver’s premier, all-girl professional Lip Sync Band, “The Wrecking Balls,” thrilling audiences Vancouver-wide with pop and rock classics and multiple costume changes. In the time outside of performing, Bevin studies movement as a Certified Instructor of Equipment and Mat Pilates.
Following Antonio’s solo, Bevin’s solo demonstrates her symbiotic relationship with Vanessa.
Surges throwing her from place to place and off kilter. - Around this way somewhere. - Life draining away. - Give it to me I want it.
A structured section of improvisation where touch provides the impetus for the movement pathways.
Transforming one sense into another.
The dancers move their eyes in opposition to their body as they stare into the vacuous space that surrounds them.
When perception slips and half of the face is gone. When what is seen is not real. When reaching for something renders one empty handed.
