Brooklyn-based choreographer, dancer and actress Okwui Okpokwasili’s multi-disciplinary performance piece Poor People’s TV Room considers the collective amnesia around women’s resistance movements in Nigeria, from the Igbo Women’s War of 1929 to the recent Boko Haram kidnappings and the “save our girls” campaigns. With collaborator Peter Born, she creates a dystopian narrative in which characters slip through the fissures of time, wandering in a bush of ghosts.

A post-showing artist and audience dialogue will be moderated by David Thomson.
