ManMan @TCA Taikothon 2018

Here is a video from Taiko Community Alliance Taikothon 2018 where ManMan talked about her creative process with the Odaiko piece “Gliding Dreams”.

Most Odaiko training takes a predominantly loud, aggressive and forceful approach, this choreographic composition takes on a different direction that embraces the power of gentle and graceful qualities. The piece explore various avenues of expression through creative movement that highlight the diversity of the instrument and celebrate the unique identity of the drummer(s). Building a deeper body awareness and utilizing the space around the drummer(s) to create a portrait of their relationship with the Odaiko.
