Solo creation at the intersection of theatre, dance and visual art installation, Bronx Gothic gives palatable force to the charged relationship between two girls on the verge of adolescence in 1980s outer-borough New York City – where Newport cigarettes are bought in singles at the corner bodega, sex-saturated notes are passed in class and Orchard Beach erupts in flames.

Created by New-York-based writer, performer and choreographer, Okwui Okpokwasili, in collaboration with director and designer, Peter Born, Bronx Gothic is a performance of psychic and physical collisions that threaten to break the body. Collecting a prestigious ‘Bessie’ award during its New York run, this powerhouse work takes an unflinching look into the exquisite turbulence of one woman’s memory, drawing inspiration from both Victorian-era novels and West African griot storytelling.

Bronx Gothic unfolds as a dark and powerful tale of sexual awakening and the body in transformation – and the humour, love, strangeness, and even terror, that accompany it.
