Event

nora chipaumire Master Class
NOTE: online sales end at 5:30 pm, but there will be an opportunity to participate by showing up at the theater -- there are several spots still available. Payment is by cash only at the door.

nora chipaumire offers a movement experience geared towards technical understanding and development of the body as a physical instrument. The class will begin with a warm-up to experience the myriad ways the body functions and defies or accepts gravity, followed by a time of exploring and embodying noras physical language and sharing her understanding of the architecture and construction of space, time, and force in choreography. Participants will then learn sequences from her choreographic repertory and further be encouraged to synthesize explored concepts in order to create an original composition inspired by noras choreography. Through all parts of the class, students are invited to participate in reflecting and debating on the work to develop a Dance Literacy.

Duration: Two hours

Participant requirements: Intermediate to Advanced and/or mature
Participants should bring a journal and writing instrument and wear loose, comfortable clothing.

Born in Mutare, Zimbabwe and based in NYC, nora chipaumire has been challenging and embracing stereotypes of Africa and the black performing body, art and aesthetics since she started making dances in 1998. chipaumire is currently developing #PUNK 100%POP *NIGGA, a three-part live performance album which will have its world premiere at The Kitchen in NYC in October 2018. chipaumire is currently touring portrait of myself as my father (2016), an exploration of masculinity and black African manhood. Other recent work include a digital book project - nhaka - a technology, practice and process to her artistic work.
