Saturday, March 14, 8pm
One-night-only!

Okwui Okpokwasili and composer, performer, and educator,  Samita Sinha, have been informally sharing their individual voice and body practices over the past year. Sinha’s work combines Bengalese Baul vocal tradition with vocal and movement experiments that investigate her cultural inheritance. Okpokwasili writes and performs songs for her performance collaborations with Born.

Many of Okpokwasili’s songs are included in her first album, day pulls down the sky (available February 22), produced by Danspace Project. PLATFORM 2020 co-curator, Judy Hussie-Taylor, has invited these two singular artists to create a new collaboration for this special one-night-only event.
