Body Mechanics

Afripedia – Dance Battle 360°

In Afro Promo #1 (Kinglady), performance artist and choreographer Nora Chipaumire explores the influence of comic book heroes on the American immigrant experience to unpack aspects of African masculinity and explore the creation of a Black, African, male-female superhero.


Body Mechanics is a short experimental dance film by Brooklyn-based artist Keisha Knight remixing archival films by Thomas Edison to explore early cinema’s fascination with the exotic and the electric.


Afripedia Dance Battle 360°

Welcome to the world’s first 360° VR Dance Battle experience from Africa, showcasing some of the best urban street dancers from Dakar, Senegal.
