Energetic performance against African stereotypes
For her triptych ‘#PUNK 100% POP *N!GGA’ – an incredible live performance with dance, song, beats and spoken word – African choreographer Nora Chipaumire took inspiration from her youth spent in Zimbabwe and from the punk rebels and new wavers of the eighties. Each part revolves around an iconic woman: Patti Smith (‘#PUNK’), Grace Jones (‘100% POP’) and Rit Nzele (‘* NIGGA’).
On the opening day of SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT, Chipaumire will perform the first part at the Vooruit Café, together with top Jamaican athlete and hip-hop freestyler Shamar Watt. #PUNK’ is based on the iconic song ‘Rock ‘n roll nigger’ by American folk heroine Patti Smith. Chipaumire shines in this energetic performance in which rock, reggae, African dance and racist stereotypes collide head-on.
