The Warhol is pleased to partner with the Kelly Strayhorn Theater to welcome back dancer/choreographer, Nora Chipaumire. As a much anticipated follow-up to lions will roar…, a collaboration with fellow Zimbabwean and legendary musician, Thomas Mapfumo, (co-presented with the August Wilson Center in 2011) Chipaumire returns with Miriam, her first character-driven work, with influences such as of Joseph Conrad’s writings, the life of South African singer and activist Miriam Makeba; and the Christian iconography of Mary. Accompanied by a dynamic score from Afro-Cuban composer Omar Sosa, Chipaumire and fellow performer, Okwui Okpokwasili, command the stage-- both crime scene and sacred space-- with a striking performance dealing with the objectification and power of the black female body and the alienating experience of living in exile.
Please note that this event is not at The Andy Warhol Museum, but at Kelly Strayhorn Theater in Pittsburgh. Please consult the map and link in the sidebar of this page for directions and more information.
