“Missing taiko, but also living in a pandemic? Who isn’t? Join Anabel and Emily for a new taiko experience! We have an opportunity to use the time we have without the actual drum to look at our whole selves in relation to playing taiko. We call this “taiko choreo.”
Through an original new piece, we will examine how we move our bodies in everyday life and transfer that into our taiko movement; engage our muscles with proper form; and learn how to use our whole bodies to generate a stroke. We will also connect with each other through discussions that critically examine why we play taiko.
Whether you’re brand new or have had years of playing under your belt, this is a new approach to taiko so we’ll all start from the beginning together. So find some space, and taiko choreo with us!
