portrait of myself as my father celebrates and critiques masculinity (its presence, presentation and representation) as dancer-choreographer nora chipaumire continues her investigations focused on the black body, on Africa and on the self. Performed by chipaumire, Pape Ibrahima N’diaye (or Kaolack, who danced with Compagnie Jant-Bi for many years) and Shamar Watt, portrait considers the African male through the lens of cultural traditions, colonialism, Christianity, liberation struggles—and how these ideas might impact the African family and society on a global scale. portrait is timely in its examination of black maleness as it asks, “What is it about the male body, which happens to be black, that we are afraid of?”
