self – un – contained | Performative lecture by nora chipaumire

A “rock star of downtown dance” (Dance Magazine), the Zimbabwean-born, Brooklyn-based choreographer nora chipaumire uses her choreography to challenge and embrace stereotypes of Africa and the black performing body.

With self-un-contained, chipaumire will continue her investigation into portraiture and self-portraiture, focusing on the representation of black identities in a digital Snapchat world. Taking the form of an impromptu digital broadcast, a glamorous fashion runway, and a pamphlet in movement, this performance will demonstrate Africans’ strong abilities to proclaim life and liberty and to pursue happiness with their swag.
