We’re Making a Band is a research project I’m devising with Justine A. Chambers. The project will explore the idiomatic movement of drummers, specifically how the physical approach to the drum kit may (or may not) be defined by the gender of the player. This is a project for three drummers (Mili Hong, Joy Mullen, Ben Brown) and two dancers (Arash Khakpour, Ashley Whitehead). This research project works to transpose the physicality of the drummer into the choreographic.
