A BRONX TALE
You’ve admired this rangy, passionate woman, the holder of two Bessie awards, in Ralph Lemon’s shattering work at BAM, in her own Pent-Up: a revenge dance, in Young Jean Lee’s Lear at Soho Rep, and most recently in Julie Taymor’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Now, under the umbrella of PS122’s COIL festival, Okwui Okpokwasili shares her Bronx Gothic, evoking, with words and movement, the sexual awakenings and misadventures of two 11-year-old Bronx girls. In development for two years and supported by local and international commissions, the piece is directed and designed by videographer Peter Born, Okpokwasili’s Yale classmate.
