(LA Times) Moment of Friday: An Angolan dance jam from artist Okwui Okpokwasili

Posted July 18, 2014 in

"A young girl stands in a corner, half dancing, half wriggling. The movements are adult as much as they are childlike. She shakes her hips with a budding sense of sensuality, then flails her arms as if she were having a temper tantrum. This sequence is the opening scene from New York artist Okwui Okpokwasili's gripping one-woman show, "Bronx Gothic," which is having its West Coast premiere under the auspices of Show Box L.A. (Seriously, go see it. It's riveting.) The hybrid play/performance tells the story of two tweenage girls through the intensely emotional and unwittingly hilarious notes they pass to each other in class."
