Evan McKie

Principal Dancer

WILL BE DANCING:

VITA

Evan McKie was born in Toronto, Canada. He received his initial ballet training at the National Ballet School of Canada and the Kirov Academy in Washington D.C. Following an invitation from Petr Pestov to come to Stuttgart, he completed his studies at the John Cranko Schule in Stuttgart in 2001.
After his graduation he became an apprentice with the Stuttgart Ballet and was then taken into the Corps de ballet. In 2005/06 he was promoted to Demi-Soloist, in 2006/07 to Soloist after his debut performance as Lenski in John Cranko’s Onegin. His promotion to Principal Dancer followed in 2009/10 after dancing the title role of Kevin O’Day’s Hamlet.

Choreographers who have created roles for Evan McKie in Stuttgart include Wayne McGregor, Marco Goecke, Mauro Bigonzetti, Christian Spuck, Edward Clug, Kevin O’Day, Louis Stiens, Bridget Breiner, Demis Volpi and Douglas Lee. He has also worked with William Forsythe, Jiří Kylián, John Neumeier, Marcia Haydée, Hans van Manen, Jorma Elo and the late Glen Tetley.

Evan McKie has recently performed as a guest dancer with the Paris Opera Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, Universal Ballet, The Tokyo Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada and the Ballet de Santiago de Chile. He is also a Principal Guest Artist of the National Ballet of Canada where he performs regularly. He has received critical acclaim for his performances as Jago in Othello (John Neumeier), Hamlet (Kevin O’Day), Onegin and Lenski in Onegin (John Cranko), all of the leading male roles in the classical Petipa repetoire and also performances of contemporary pieces like William Forsythe's workwithinwork. In 2013, McKie was thrilled to share TANZ Magazine's 'international dancer of the year' title with the other male principal dancers of the Stuttgart Ballet. He has also been listed in Dance Europe’s Critics’ Choice List several times as well as being nominated for 'best performance of the year' by Shinshokan Japanese Dance magazine.

In July 2012 Evan McKie received the Premio ApuliArte “Prix Grand Merit”, a prize awarded yearly by a panel of prestigious dance journalists for the season’s outstanding performances. The journalists cited McKie’s performances in the title role of John Cranko’s Onegin with the Paris Opera, in Rudolph Nureyev’s The Sleeping Beauty with the National Ballet of Canada and in John Cranko’s Swan Lake with the Stuttgart Ballet.

Evan McKie has choreographed two successful works for the Noverre Society “Young Choreographer” evenings in Stuttgart. When he is not onstage, McKie works as a photographer specializing in abstract portraits and is also a guest writer for American Dance Magazine, Shinshokan Dance Magazine and the Chacott brand of Japan. American Dance Magazine named him an honorary advisory board member in 2011.
