Stephanie Hewett is a performer, movement researcher, choreographer, and teacher from the Bronx, New York. 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 the multifaceted, coterminous relationship between identity and desire. Her favorite moments are those rooted in collaboration and spontaneity. Hewett’s research is guided by an urge to connect past and present while imagining new sites of expression that subvert current hegemonic structures.
About this Project
/soft/c/ embraces the multidimensionality of pleasure. By examining the contrasts of marginalized bodies against a broad spectrum of hegemonic normative constructs, /soft/c/ creates critical, nuanced musings on fluidity, intimacy, queer futurity, blackness, and power.
