BLACK LIVES MATTER

Stephanie Hewett is a choreographer, movement researcher, performer, and teacher from the Bronx, New York (Lenape territory). She is a graduate of Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and the Performing Arts and has studied at the Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. She holds an MFA in Dance from Mills College and was recently on faculty at the College of San Mateo. Her movement-based performance work aims to highlight fluid identity and reimagines the future as a site of rebirth. Her current research entails navigating performance through injury, pleasure frequencies, and excavating ancestral vestiges in the body.

Stephanie Hewett is a movement artist, choreographer, teacher, and collaborator whose work emerges from a play-based movement practice within an investigative framework. Interested in the unscrupulous nature of change, Hewett approaches her dance-making in a way that welcomes and questions some of life’s inevitabilities, while also challenging traditional notions of the Western dance aesthetic. Hewett chooses to be meticulous in the mapping of her internal world in relation to the external, and exploits those destinations as starting points for choreographic inquiry. She is currently collaborating with several interdisciplinary artists throughout the Bay Area, exploring themes of sexuality, queerness, and radical models of resistance.
