Description
“In language that is by turns blunt and poetic, crudely funny and incantatory,

Ms. Okpokwasili conjures and probes this adolescent friendship, a jumble of

insults, anger and love... A magnetic performer.“ – The New York Times


A solo creation at the intersection of theater, dance

and visual art installation, Bronx Gothic gives palpable

force to the charged relationship between two girls

on the verge of adolescence in 1980s outer-borough

New York City--where Newports are bought in singles

at the corner bodega, sex saturated notes are passed

in class, and Orchard Beach erupts in flame.

Okwui Okpokwasili’s acclaimed piece has been hailed

as a breakthrough work. Hers is a performance of

psychic and physical collisions that threaten to break

the body—an unflinching look into the exquisite

turbulence of one woman’s memory. Created in

collaboration with designer Peter Born, Bronx Gothic

draws inspiration from Victorian-era novels and West

African griot storytelling to reveal a dark and powerful

tale of sexual awakening, the body in transformation

and the humor, love, strangeness and even terror that

accompany it.
