| January 13 – 15, 2009

Roster Artist Nora Chipaumire will be discussing her new project lions will roar, swans will fly, angels will wrestle heaven, rains will break: gukurahundi at the ISPA Pitch Session.

gukurahundi is an hour-long multi-disciplinary performance featuring contemporary/African solo dance artist Nora Chipaumire (a two-time Bessie Award winner), legendary Zimbabwean musicians Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited, and video artist Joelle Dietrick. gukurahundi explores the migrant experience within and outside of Africa and examines how Africa is portrayed, or “packaged” to a western, globalized world. Integrating movement, live music, and projected video imagery, gukurahundi presents a new way to see, hear, and experience Africa. gukurahundi has received support from The National Dance Project with US tour subsidies available in 09/10.

Find out more during the ISPA Pitch session on Wednesday, January 14 at 10:00 am at The Times Center (242 West 41st Street).
