More Information on #PUNK – Transform 19
nora chipaumire ((ZIMBABWE/USA)
Rock, reggae, Patti Smith and African dance collide.
In #PUNK, chipaumire embraces punk’s rejection of the status quo, and considers that there is no future, that the future is in the present. This energetic performance travels through decades, forms and musical styles.
Born in Zimbabwe and based in New York City, nora chipaumire has been challenging and embracing stereotypes of Africa and the Black performing body, art, and aesthetic for over a decade.
“nora chipaumire has long been a kind of rock star of dance.” The New Yorker
Presented as part of Transform 19, a festival of powerful international performance – 26 April – 4 May 19 – transformfestival.org
