The Kitchen is pleased to present the world premiere of nora chipaumire’s #PUNK 100% POP*NIGGA, a three-part work conceived of as a live performance album inspired by chipaumire’s formative years in Zimbabwe during the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s. Each section explores distinct sonic ideologies—punk, pop, and Congolese rumba—confronted and celebrated through the artists Patti Smith, Grace Jones, and Congolese vocal performer and animator (atalaku) Rit Nzele. chipaumire moves through these three, distinct sonic and visual landscapes as part of her continued investigation of portraiture and self-portraiture, biography, subjecthood, liberation, and independence. Presented as part of the Crossing The Line Festival, produced by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF).

October 11—13, 7pm. $25 General / $20 Members.
