Award-winning New York/Harare choreographer and dancer, Nora Chipaumire has challenged and embraced stereotypes of Africa and the black performing body, art and aesthetic for the past decade.
In this new two-part work inspired by the iconic The Rite of Spring, she explores the contemporary demands for sacrifice, embodied in performance and by the performer and asks if it is possible to conceive a “rite of spring,” a ritual sacrifice and surrender within an African family.
The presentation of rite riot NYC is commissioned by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) as part of FIAF’s Crossing the Line Festival 2013. Development and production funded in part by The MAP Fund, supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This project is made possible, in part, by the Africa and Middle East Cultural Partnerships Program of the Suitcase Fund, an initiative of New York Live Arts supported by the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation. rite riot was created during a residency provided by The Joyce Theater Foundation, New York City, with major support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Production residencies for rite riot were provided by Hecho Mano (FR) and Dance New Amsterdam (US).
