nora chipaumire returns to La Raffinerie to conclude her cycle of music and choreography. After punk and pop, it is now the turn of the Congolese rumba along with Rit Nzele. It is also a sonic and performative essay on the question of the nigga. Sitting on her throne, Queen nora, accompanied by her group, shouts at us and invites us to revaluate the modern world constructed on exploitation of the black man.
