TaikoArts Midwest proposes a simple, ground-breaking idea: bring the best North American and Japanese female taiko artists together for a two-week artist residency to collaborate and create a one-of-a-kind performance. Envisioned as a catalyst to fuel movement towards gender equity in taiko, this project celebrates and puts women center stage in a collaborative, unique performance.

  • The HERbeat project is intended to promote gender equity in taiko drumming. Taiko drumming was originally performed by men, but that tradition has changed. What are other traditions, besides taiko, that have changed over time? And what kinds of changes do you think still need to occur?
