ASL-English Interpreter

Robert Azevedo (they/them) is an Atlantic dance artist currently residing in elmastukwek ktaqmkuk / Corner Brook, NL. They are a graduate of Simon Fraser University’s Dance Program (2015) and spent over a decade performing and creating in British Columbia before returning East during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their art begins with the liveness of the connection between people.

As a dancer and creator, Robert enjoys defying the expectations of what dance is and can be. Their practice is firmly rooted in contemporary dance but their research and training also includes forms like karaoke, zumba, and social dance. They have also worn hats as a curator, producer, teacher, advocate, dramaturg, and writer of dance.

Outside of dance, Robert works as an ASL-English Interpreter, and sits on the board for the Canadian Association for Sign Language Interpreters (CASLI) as well as the board of the provincial chapter of that organization (NAVLI).
