This season’s five-week “Stripped/Dressed” series, curated by choreographer Doug Varone, opens with a sidelong 
tribute to The Rite of Spring, minus the Stravinsky score and the flock of pagan maidens. Zimbabwe native Nora Chipaumire’s rite riot addresses complex issues surrounding people in power gazing at women and Africans, the fickleness of American celebrity, spring rituals in Zimbabwe, and the sacrifices central to a dance career. The fierce Ms. Chipaumire, who holds a degree from Zimbabwe’s School of Law and advanced certificates in dance from Mills College, has won almost every prize the dance world offers in her 10 years stateside; she’s featured in several recent films, and has taught and performed nationwide. Now based here, she’s fearless, focused, and frightening.
