“Okpokwasili is quite simply a virtuoso, an exquisite singer, speaker, writer, mover, a siren who draws us to danger.”—Chicago Tribune

Writer, performer, and choreographer Okwui Okpokwasili is one of the most dynamic stage presences in the contemporary performing arts world, both through her solo work and her involvement with Ralph Lemon, Julie Taymor, Young Jean Lee, and Richard Maxwell. Bringing her acclaimed one-woman show Bronx Gothic to the movie screen, this intimate documentary captures her fusion of song, dance, and drama to tell the story of two 12-year-old black girls coming of age in the 1980s. (91 mins., DCP)
