“Chipaumire has become a rock star of downtown dance…. [She] blows everything else out of the water.” – Dance Magazine

Fierce, charismatic choreographer Nora Chipaumire throws herself into the boxing ring with the myth and memory of her father, a man she hardly knew. She is tethered to him as he endures the pressures facing the African male: traditions, colonialism, Christianity, liberation struggles. Chipaumire has given him boxing gloves so he has a fighting chance as he does battle with himself, his shadow, his ancestors, the industrial gods, and that merciless tyrant: progress.
