YBCA Screening Room Sun, Sep 17 & Sun, Sep 24 See more at An electrifying portrait of writer and performer Okwui Okpokwasili and her acclaimed one-woman show titled Bronx Gothic. Rooted in memories of her childhood, Okwui's one-woman show 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 verite access to Okwui - who's worked with conceptual artists like Ralph Lemon and Julie Taymor - and her audiences off the stage, this film allows for unparalleled insight into the creative process as well as the complex social issues embodied in it. (2017, 91 min, digital) Presented in conjunction with TRANSFORM, YBCA's new festival. Transform celebrates the power of ideas through transformative performance. Each fall and spring, we will convene leading contemporary artists for a provocative showcase of dance, theater, and music.
