Chez Bushwick presents performances by four artists who are completing a three month residency at Chez Bushwick studio. These artists include HEWMAN, Kayla Farrish, Phoebe Berglund, and Wendell Gray.

Since its inception in 2014, HEWMAN has focused on presenting installation work in unconventional venues where the audience is free to move at will throughout the performance. HEWMAN’s latest work sets the new challenge of creating for a traditional proscenium theater without sacrificing our main choreographic constant: to establish an authentic and close relationship with the audience that emphasizes the similarity between performer and viewer, not the difference.

HEWMAN’s new work, a duet between cofounders Jason Collins and James Lindsay Harwell, is an exploration of identity through the examination of traditional presentation, the desire for individuality, and romantic love versus self-love.

Kayla Farrish 

I’ve been utilizing this residency as a lab to launch my long time envisioned music video ideas. It’s been important and therapeutic for me to explore experience, heritage, and history through my lens as a black woman. I want to capture the spectrum of real and different individuals by exploring themes of race, gender, roles, oppression, sexuality, and what drives us. Each person becomes a storyteller.
