The Watermill Center’s In Process series of open studios and rehearsals by its resident artists will resume tomorrow at 5:30 p.m., when K Abram, A.J. Bermudez, and RUPTURE, a collective, will present their works in progress.

K Abram is a poet and essayist based in Brooklyn whose work was named a finalist in the BOMB Magazine Poetry Contest, the Meridian Short Prose Prize, and the Wabash Prize for Poetry. They hold an M.F.A. in creative writing from New York University. While in residence, K Abram is working on a manuscript that explores themes of body, illness, gender, violence, and religion.

Ms. Bermudez is a writer and filmmaker who works in New York and Los Angeles. Her first book, “Stories Nobody Hopes Are About Them,” won the 2022 Iowa Short Fiction Award and was a 2023 Lambda Award finalist. Her screenwriting has won awards at Sundance, SXSW, the LGBTQ+ Film Festival, and elsewhere. At the center, she is developing her newest book, “How to Escape From a Coffin: A Memoir,” which incorporates elements of literary essay, narrative memoir, and screenwriting, drawn from her experiences of orphanhood and work in the film industry.

RUPTURE is a bicoastal collective of queer performance artists, including jose e. abad, Styles Alexander, Gabriele Christian, Clarissa Rivera Dyas, and Stephanie Hewett. Sourcing work from Harlem, the Bronx, Oakland, Los Angeles, and the Deep South, the collective uses somatic, theatrical, ritual, and experimental sound practices.

Their work-in-progress is “Diasporadica,” a three-hour choreographic experiment that integrates contemporary dance, community engagement, sound production, installation, and ritual.

Free reservations can be made on the center’s website.
