TICKETS ON SALE AT DOOR. BOX OFFICE OPENS AT 7PM
Chimurenga (struggle) is a post revolution solo trilogy choreographed and performed by Nora Chipaumire. Through movement, film, text and a sound installation, the work describes the personal collective trauma of surviving war/revolution in Zimbabwe.
Nora Chipaumire is a remarkable solo dance artist who investigates the collaborative process within cultural,
political, economic, and technological identities of African contemporary life. Nora was born in Mutare, Zimbabwe during the chim urenga chechipiri, or second war of liberation. A self-exiled artist now based in New York, she has been a featured dancer with the world renowned Urban Bush Women for three years. A powerful and inspiring performer and teacher, her work is transitional, unafraid and eager to burn cultural, creative, and geographic boundaries. She creates provocative and politically relevant multimedia dance work, illuminating what it means to be African/woman/black/human in an increasingly borderless world.
