Bessie Award-winning dancer/choreographer and former Urban Bush Women star Nora Chipaumire continues her examination of race and gender in this profound and highly-personal work, which considers the African male (and the father she never knew) through the lens of colonialism, Christianity and liberation struggles. Tethered together in a boxing ring, she and Senegalese dancer Pape Ibrahima Ndiayeare dance, struggle, and fight against prejudices, pressures, and the weight of traditions and history, as Jamaican-born, Brooklyn-based dancer Shamar Watt, cheers and coaches from the corner.
"A no-holds-barred look at masculinity in African culture and the African male body in American culture." - The New York TimesCo-presented with MDC Live ArtsPlease note: Due to circumstances beyond our control, this event, originally to take place at Matt Baiamonte’s Boxing Club, has relocated to the Lightbox at Goldman Warehouse, which will be staged to feel like a boxing ring.
