portrait of myself--Nora Chipaumire Fri 8/3

Home > Bates Dance Festival 2018 > portrait of myself--Nora Chipaumire Fri 8/3

Event Information

“portrait of myself as my father” takes place in a simulated boxing ring in which Chipaumire and Senegalese dancer Pape Ibrahima Ndiaye, also known as Kaolack, are tied together in an exhausting and symbolic dance-ritual. They are both linked and opposed, and the elastic bands are a literal and figurative connection that question family ties. Joining them in this singular performance event is Jamaican-born, Brooklyn-based dancer Shamar Watt, who plays the coach/corner man/cheerleader/shadow.

Nora Chipaumire has been challenging and embracing stereotypes of Africa and the black performing body, art and aesthetic. She is a graduate of the University of Zimbabwe’s School of Law and holds a master’s degree in dance and a master’s of fine arts in choreography and performance from Mills College. She has studied dance in Africa, Cuba, Jamaica and the U.S. and has performed worldwide.
