In this visceral exploration of African masculinity, Zimbabwe-born Brooklyn based choreographer Nora Chipaumire is joined by specters of her estranged father (performed by Senegalese dancer Pape Ibahim Ndiaye, and Jamaican born dancer Shamer Watt). In a make shift boxing ring, the three trade jabs, steeped in Chipaumire's trademark synthesis of contemporary African movements. Clad in boxing gloves, football pads, and sacred West African gris-gris, they teetor between combat and play, exploding stereotypes of black manhood in an uncompromising exchange.
