The Language of a Body

Boyle_NJ_NoraChipaumire_Shot04_0026

nora chipaumire enters the room at ROOT Studios, and immediately commands it. The dancer, who was born in Mutare, Zimbabwe and who currently resides in Brooklyn, met with us a few days ahead of her performance at NeueHouse Madison Square, where she displayed her explorations and challenges of the stereotype of the black performing body. Pulling out beautiful artisanal clothing pieces from a woven bag, including a coat made from prayer rugs, chipaumire’s preparation is a reflection of her as an artist who takes every aspect into consideration. Once in front of photographer Andrew Boyle’s camera, with warm music loudly playing, the powerhouse talent showed us the language of a body and proved why she is such a necessary figure in the world of dance today.

Spring is the perfect season to strip back the layers and bare a little skin. Along with warm weather comes the opportunity to seek out the sun, and let soft supple skin be your most stylish accessory. In perfect contrast to a glowing visage, photographer Manolo Campion juxtaposes a number of geometric creations by jewelry mavens Ana Khouri and Annelise Michelson.
