Media Coverage

“Chipaumire choreographs in the realm of Afro-immediacy. She demands that the audience witness, acknowledge, and value black and African people now—there’s no room to prevaricate.”

BOMB Magazine (United States), 16-02-2019

“Defiantly charismatic, the Zimbabwean-born choreographer Nora Chipaumire has long been a kind of rock star of dance.”

The New Yorker, 08-10-2018

“Chipaumire claims her rights: to resist, to find joy in rage, and to misbehave. She holds space as an American, Zimbabwean, human, artist here to have fun. […] Watch her go! Safely outside your box, she thrashes in sweat-dripping ecstasy.”
