Dance/Performance

Zimbabwe/USA

Mixed

50 min.

The triptych that began on 8 July with #PUNK 100% POP, closes the following day, Tuesday, July 9, with *N!GGA (pronounced “Star Nigga”). In the final set, this time with the audience sitting in the room, nora chipaumire transports us to Kinshasa in the hands of the singer and animator Rit Nzele and in a setting that is reminiscent of those backyards of the Congolese capital where local bands invite neighbours to set up their new work and record audio visual material to promote them.

Indeed, it looks promising, a great celebration of the body, music, dance and many other things, led by an artist born in Zimbabwe who lives in New York and has studied dance in Africa, Cuba, Jamaica and the USA. Her work is an exploration of her own identity and biography, and of such concepts as independence and liberation, which she already did in portrait of myself as my father.
