'Desarrollo' follows three queer and trans Bronx natives as they grow from exuberant 13-year olds to yearning, unmoored young adults. Part of the second annual Corkscrew Festival of new work.
As kids growing up in New York City,
Nelly, Alaida, and Sol spent hot summer days daring, dancing, and documenting their way across boroughs, rivers, and storefronts. Ten years later, time has seemed to warp everything, from their once-indestructible friendship to the landscape of the streets they used to call home. 'Desarrollo' is an unraveling—a discovery—of what happens to the people and the places we love when put under pressure; like film developing in the dark, their stories are ones of transformation, of capturing the moments that change us.
