(E)cho (Q)ueue is an experimental multimedia performance piece that reinforces techno music as an inherently Black American invention by examining its lineage and synthesizing Afro-Diasporic rhythmic and tonal forms with movement. Through visual projections, choreography, and original music composed by Hewett’s moniker, Madre Guía, (E)cho (Q)ueue aims to speak to the cultural, social, and spiritual impact of Black cultural production by elevating its past, present, and future. Joining her will be two Bay Area powerhouses Audrey Johnson and Laila Shabazz, with creative support from Abdoulie Jallow and Joslynn Mathis-Reed. (E)cho (Q)ueue is supported by the Zellerbach Family Foundation, Kenneth Rainin Foundation, Dancers’ Group, and FACT/SF.
Stephanie Hewett (she/they) is an interdisciplinary artist from the Bronx, New York (Lenapehoking territory) currently residing in Oakland, CA (Ohlone-Chochenyo territory). She is a graduate of Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and the Performing Arts in New York City and has studied at the Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. They hold an MFA in Dance Studies and use both music and movement to dream into new forms of Black & Queer liberation rooted in spiritual, physical, and sonic defense. Hewett DJ's and produces electronic music under the moniker, Madre Guía. Their Afro-Caribbean roots guide them towards polyrhythmic potentialites of intergenerational healing.
