The British choreographer and dancer, Evie Poaros, started her dance education in London, before moving to Germany to continue her training. She trained in Mannheim and Frankfurt, where she graduated with a BA degree from the HfMDK Frankfurt and completed an internship with The Forsythe Company, under the direction of William Forsythe. She has worked with choreographers including William Forsythe, Regina van Berkel, Marguerite Donlon, Ramses Sigl, Richard Siegal, Claudia Schreier and Spenser Theberge.

In 2021 Evie danced at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in Claus Guth’s production of Jenůfa, which received an Olivier Award in 2022 for Best New Opera Production. Her collaboration with Claus Guth has led her to work as a choreographer and movement collaborator at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples (Don Carlo) and the Festival Aix-en-Provence (Il Viaggio, Dante).
As a freelance dancer and choreographer, Evie has been involved in dance, film and interdisciplinary projects. She has worked with ensembles including Ensemble Modern, Dorfproduct, Kammerphilharmonie Frankfurt and Gossips collective. In 2022 she was commissioned to co-choreograph at Alte Oper Frankfurt for the concert evening 2 x Hören: Hindemith alongside pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard and she recently co-choreographed a new work for Gossips collective. Her film experience includes featuring in the 2021 dance film HINENI, choreographed by Gal Fefferman, which was screened at various festivals in Germany and Israel, and as a soloist in the musical short film, Obscura Nox directed by Mary Birnbaum, which was selected as a finalist in festivals in Canada and the United States and was part of Opera Philedelphia’s Opera on Film series in 2022.
