Performers

TAIKOPROJECT

11:30 AM – 12:15 PM TAIKOPROJECT

TAIKOPROJECT presents an interactive and dynamic introduction to the music, history, and art of taiko. The program features songs interspersed with specific aspects of how taiko has made its way from Japan to modern day America. The audience is also given a view into how the drums are constructed and the craftsmanship involved. The group gives insight into the contemporary approach used to create and play taiko music today, blending traditional forms with an innovative and fresh aesthetic.

Diavolo

1:30 PM – 2:15 PM  Diavolo

Diavolo is composed of dancers, gymnasts, and actors who all work as teammates. As collaborators they work on, and around, outrageous surrealistic sets and structures.  This performance is entitled “T.R.U.S.T.,” created and performed by Diavolo/Architecture in Motion. Diavolo’s gravity-defying movements create metaphors for the challenges of human relationships and the struggle to maintain one’s balance in today’s technical, and often detached world. 

Cultural Workshop

Kinetic Paper Sculptures (11 AM – 2 PM)
Participants will enjoy a fun, fascinating and colorful project. They will use construction paper strips to create a variety of forms inspired by architectural elements. When finished, they will explore simple ways to make elements move.
