Rooted in memories of her childhood, Okwui’s show fuses dance, song, drama, and comedy to create a mesmerizing space in which audiences engage with a story of two twelve-year-old black girls coming of age in the 1980s. With intimate vérité access to Okwui—who has worked with such acclaimed conceptual artists as 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.
