In #PUNK, first part of a music trilogy, the choreographer nora chipaumire, a recipient of three Bessie Awards and a 2018 Guggenheim fellow, internationally acclaimed for her iconoclastic style, draws inspiration from her formative years in Zimbabwe during the 1970s and 1980s. The word ‘punk’ refers to the music of that period, but also to an uncompromising, anti-commercial way of living, built on the principles of self-reliance and do-it-yourself. chipaumire is inspired by Patti Smith’s provocative song “Rock ‘n’ roll nigger.” Through her one-of-a-kind visual landscapes and soundscapes, she tackles concepts such as self-depiction, biography, emancipation, independence, adopting a distinctly punk take on the concept of ‘future’: there is no future; the future is already embedded in the present.
