Past Event Off the Wall 2013: Nora Chipaumire: Miriam 


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.

Co-presented with Kelly Strayhorn Theater
