Okwui Okpokwasili is a 2018 MacArthur 'Genius Award' recipient.
Part theatre, part dance and part visual art installation, Okwui Okpokwasili's Bronx Gothic delves into her memories of growing up in the Bronx, before emerging into a breathtaking exploration of girlhood.
Created in collaboration with Peter Born, in this UK premiere, Bronx Gothic draws on inspiration from West African griot storytelling and the epistolary style of the Victorian novel to ask what it means to be brown in a world that values whiteness.
