Bessie-Award winning Okpokwasili continues development of Bronx Gothic, a performance piece that combines movement, spoken word, and songs framed within an oral storytelling tradition that recalls the West African griot tradition and the epistolary form of the Victorian Gothic novel.Park Avenue Armory’s Under Construction Series provides audiences with a rare glimpse into the creative process of the extraordinary artists in residence at the Armory, who set up studios for project-based residencies and offer public previews of works-in-progress in our radiant period rooms. These intimate gatherings often include discussions between artists and audiences that are intended to help shape works through public response.
