Due to this year being first year back in-person, the HB Artistic Council has not had the capacity to hold an open application process for Artist in Residency program. This year, we’ve decided to reach out to our past 2020 Resident Artists to return.
In 1850, one man sinks an entire ship to settle a Moby Dick measuring contest. In 2022 an all womxn and non-binary cast battles thunderstorms, whirlpools, boredom and the occasional whale to resurrect the Pequod and ask: …why?
Through this residency we will be excavating this iconic text from the point of view of the voices and individuals that have been left out or excluded. What does it mean for (in this case) womxn and non-binary individuals to interact with these characters and ideas?
