A free screening/discussion intended for high school/college age youth (and group leader/facilitators).
An electrifying portrait of writer and performer Okwui Okpokwasili and her acclaimed one-woman show, BRONX GOTHIC. Rooted in memories of her childhood, Okwui – who’s worked with conceptual artists like Ralph Lemon and Julie Taymor – fuses dance, song, drama and comedy to create a mesmerizing space in which audiences can engage with a story about two 12-year-old black girls coming of age in the 1980s. With intimate vérité access to Okwui and her audiences off the stage, Bronx Gothic allows for unparalleled insight into her creative process as well as the complex social issues embodied in it.
If you or your group is interested in attending this free event, please contact Jon Courtney to RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org

The screening will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with Okwui Okpokwasili.
