nora chipaumire, Introduction to Nhaka

© Elise Duval


Born and raised in Zimbabwe, the choreographer nora chipaumire has been developing a living technique, a physical manifesto called Nhaka (inheritance legacy in Shona, her mother tongue). By incorporating dances from the African continent into Shona philosophy and spiritual practices, she creates a dance form with no references to classical ballet or modern dance. Initiation into a liberating and demanding practice.
