The Brothers Size
Presented by OKC Rep in partnership with Oklahoma Contemporary
April 27-May 7
Main building | Te Ata Theater
In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elegba, Oshoosi’s old prison-mate, is a mysterious complication. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combined in a contemporary tale that explored the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.
