Workshop - nora chipaumire
Saturday 27 April, 1pm-3pm
Born in Zimbabwe and based in New York City, nora chipaumire has been challenging and embracing stereotypes of Africa and the Black performing body, art and aesthetic for over a decade. She has been described by the New Yorker as a “Rock Star of Dance”. Her show #PUNK sees rock, reggae and African dance merge, and is being presented at Transform 19 festival.
Alongside this exciting performance, we are excited to join forces with Koby Studioto present an exclusive workshop with nora chipaumire. The workshop can accommodate many levels of dance experience and offers an introduction to Nora’s artistic philosophy as well as her movement and creative practices.
This workshop is free to dancers who are aged 16+, up to any level of experience. There are up to 30 spaces available for the workshop – to reserve email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of who you are, and why you want to take part.
As part of this opportunity we are also able to offer up to ten free tickets to the performance of #PUNK on Sunday 28 April at Prime Studios, to emerging dancers based in Leeds who will be selected from the workshop applicants.
