The Brooklyn-based choreographer, performer, and writer Okwui Okpokwasili is the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Studio’s first artist-in-residence. For the duration of the Studio Residency, the Kravis Studio will become Okpokwasili’s working space, a site for incubation, experimentation, and collaboration, and a resource for developing and creating new work behind closed doors. Through three open rehearsals, the audience will have the opportunity to experience the evolution of Okpokwasili’s new piece together with her collaborators.

In this live conversation the artist is joined by Tina Campt and Saidiya Hartman.

Organized by Ana Janevski, Curator, with Gee Wesley, Curatorial Assistant, and May Makki, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance. Produced by Kate Scherer, Manager and Producer, with Jessie Gold, Aminah Ibrahim, and Kayva Yang, Assistant Performance Coordinators, Performance and Live Programs.
