From the venue:Bronx Gothic reveals an impassioned coming of age story as notes are surreptitiously passed between two pre-teen girls. Using song, stories, and movement, Okwui Okpokwasili chronicles the sexual awakening and exploits of two 11-year-old girls living in the Bronx. This solo performance features direction and visual design by Bessie award-winner Peter Born. Recalling the West African griot storyteller tradition, the show features an intensely physical solo performance by Okpokwasili.
