One of the most anticipated/hyped performance pieces in our recent memory, Zimbabwe/New York–based choreographer Nora Chipaumire sets up for the weekend inside the actual ring at Uppercut Boxing Gym in Northeast for her show, Portrait of Myself as My F̶a̶t̶h̶e̶r̶. In it, Chipaumire goes toe-to-toe with the specter of her estranged father and tackles themes of prejudice, social pressures, the weight of history, the African male body in American culture and more. Definitely get tickets early before they all sell out. Friday-Sunday. 8 PM. $25.Hitara
