World Premiere Nora Chipaumire Portrait of Myself as My Father

  • Alexander Kasser Theater Montclair State Univ. 1 Normal Avenue Montclair, NJ, 07043 United States

Fierce, charismatic choreographer Nora Chipaumire throws herself into the boxing ring with the myth and memory of her father, man she hardly knew. She is tethered to him as he endures the pressures facing the African male: traditions, colonialism, Christianity, liberation struggles. Chipaumre has given him boxing gloves so he has a fighting chance as he does battle with himself, his shadow, his ancestors, the industrial gods, and that merciless tyrant: progress.
