heArtwrench is a witty courageous solo show that poetically shatters stereotypes of masculinity while moving through deep emotional terrain with light hearted spirit. Evan does an amazing using hip hop in his stylistic storytelling and in heArtwrench he turns the focus inward and explores: identity, teen suicide, rape, and ultimately his path of healing in the face of adversity.
As the heArtwrench tour was much more than a self-indulgent solo performance piece, Evan facilitated community based Hip Hop Theatre workshops for:
Seattle Young Peoples Project
Gateways for Incarcerated Youth
Evan was accompanied by Desi of the Weapons Of Mass Expression collective, who created aerosol murals to promote the development of self-identity through stylized signatures everywhere they went.
