»A kind of rock star of dance« is how The New Yorker magazine described the choreographer nora chipaumire. Her works focus with energetic urgency and an incomparable aesthetic on racial discrimination and the exotic stereotypes ascribed to people from African countries. The artist, who was born in Mutare (Zimbabwe) and now lives in New York, weaves together personal experiences with cultural and social phenomena from the worlds where she has lived.
nora chipaumire’s trilogy ›#PUNK 100% POP *N!GGA‹ is a performance live album in three tracks. Channelling three of her musical heroes – Patti Smith, Grace Jones and Rit Nzele – each section explores a different musical style and its underlying ideology. Energetic, provocative and powerful, ›#PUNK 100% POP *N!GGA‹ invites the audience to break down boundaries and find a new kind of togetherness.
