Bessie Award-winning artist Okwui Okpokwasili integrates movement, song, text, and visual imagery in Poor People’s TV Room, giving voice to the oppressed while shedding light on women’s enduring power. Inspired by Nigerian political history, the performance integrates the buried narratives of women in the country and how it resonates with present actions and political resistance throughout the world. The performance was inspired by two historic incidents in Nigeria: the Women’s War of 1929, a resistance movement against British colonial powers; and the Boko Haram kidnappings of more than 300 girls which launched the Bring Back Our Girls movement. Women have been central to these campaigns, and have played essential and powerful roles in Nigeria’s independence.

Ultimately Poor People’s TV Room envelopes the viewer in a multidimensional world to look at issues of gender, culture, identity and women’s strength where the past is alive and unleashed in the present.

Part of: Transform Fest Spring 2018
May 09—20 2018

Transform, YBCA’s new festival, celebrates the power of ideas through transformative performances. Each fall and spring, we will convene leading contemporary artists for a provocative showcase of dance, music, and theater that can only happen at YBCA.

This spring, our festival is built around the question: “Where is our public imagination?” An international spectrum of performance from eclectic and progressive musical presentations (Black Women Rock!, DJ Spooky, Mark de Clive-Lowe), visually stunning dance (Capacitor, Printz Dance Project), and innovative, interdisciplinary theater driven works (Roger Guenveur Smith with Camp Santo, Okwui Okpokwasili, Lars Jan/Early Morning Opera).
