“The work that I do is concerned with interrogating and shaping narrative forms through text, movement, sound and visual design and as a woman of color, making a space for a radical subjectivity.” – Okwui Okpokwasili

Multidisciplinary artist Okwui Okpokwasili’s work is often influenced by raw and intimate semi-autobiographical text that becomes the seed for an exploration of a movement vocabulary, out of which a narrative in space and language emerges.

To get a sense of Okpokwasili’s past work, click on the video below to check out an excerpt from Poor People’s TV Room, conceived and performed by the artist.
