Dreamland Arts, Mu pound out Daiko transformation
There are indeed times when only vigorously pounding a drum will serve as a response to life's dilemmas, a concept surely not unfamiliar to Iris Shiraishi. Along with Zaraawar Mistry, she's cooked up Becoming, a show about outgrowing the angst of youth in no small part through the power of Taiko drumming.Shiraishi is a member of Mu Daiko, and her show is presented by Mu Performing Arts. Becoming traces Shiraishi's personal journey from a Hawaiian childhood to her discovery of the primal, cathartic power of music. Expect the sounds of those resonant Daiko drums, which in and of themselves are indeed pretty transformative.
