Preceding the Bates Dance Festival presentation of portrait of myself as my father, SPACE is pleased to welcome virtuosic Zimbabwean dance maker nora chipaumire in conversation with Bates College professor Myron Beasley (Associate Professor of Cultural Studies, African American Studies, and Gender and Sexuality Studies). The 2018 Guggenheim Fellow will contextualize her rigorous dance-ritual, in which she trades jabs with spectres of her estranged father as he fights against prejudice, social pressures, and the weight of history.

Preoccupations’ songs have always worked through themes of creation, destruction, and futility, and they’ve always done it with singular post-punk grit. The textures are evocative and razor-sharp. The wire is always a live one. But while that darker side may have been well-explored, that’s not quite the same as it being fully, intensely lived. This time it was, and the result is ’New Material’, a collection that broadens and deepens Preoccupations to a true mastery of their sound.

Sole (aka Tim Holland) started the 45 Below crew in Portland in the late 90s in the Munjoy Hill neighborhood, long before the condominiums and free-range bagels. As a young man, he sought an audience larger than the 207 could provide, and proceeded to move to Oakland to co-found the Anticon Collective record label, revolutionizing underground hip-hop in the process. He's lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, Spain, Arizona, Colorado, and now at last full circle, back to Maine. He's played thousands of shows across the world, and now he's coming home to stay.
