Kevin Li is appearing at PMX 2020.

Industry Guest: Kevin “Shazam” Li

Kevin “Shazam” Li is an actor, dancer and choreographer. Originally from Hong Kong, he moved to Vancouver in 2009, where he currently resides. He is best known for his hand choreography work on the SyFy Channel’s TV series “The Magicians”. Kevin’s most recent work can be seen on Apple TV’s premiere series “SEE”. Where, under the direction of movement director Paradox Pollack, Kevin has lent his talents as a movement researcher, choreographer, and coach.

Kevin got his start in dance in 2009 by joining SOULdiers, a Vancouver based training company that focused on hip hop and other street dance styles. After three years, he went on to explore a hybrid style of prop and tutting dance with the Vancouver circus community. Later on, he joined Technicru to train in the animation dance style.

In 2014, Kevin took a leap of faith and joined Modus Operandi, a Vancouver based contemporary dance training program. Despite having zero contemporary dance experience, directors Tiffany Tregarthen and David Raymond appreciated his street dance abilities and gave him a chance. The four year professional development program focusing on technical, artistic, choreographic and collaborative skills prepared him for a wide breadth of work in dance and movement.

Kevin has always been interested in different types of dance and art. But he is especially fascinated by the unique results created through the intersection of different forms, styles, elements, and cultures. He will continue to explore and innovate through his craft, with the hopes of discovering compelling ways to bridge these distinctive elements together.
