Don’t miss this unique evening of performance and conversation with Kris Bergstrom!
Join us as Kris presents his newest work for taiko in an intimate setting. The performance includes Bergstrom’s advanced choreography (“Jack Bazaar,” “Handtagonism”) and a performance of the rhythmically technical piece, “Radiddlepa.”
Kristofer Bergstrom is an accomplished taiko performer, composer, and choreographer, known for pushing the tonal possibilities of Japanese drums and for his groundbreaking movement for slant-style taiko. He was a founding member of On Ensemble, formed Los Angeles Taiko Institute alongside Yuta Kato, and is currently 2017-2018 Artist in Residence for Los Angeles County.
Come experience and enjoy the music, the inspiration and the insight of this taiko innovator who has shared so much with the taiko community! Bring your questions and energy to share with Kris, and feel free to further the conversation by joining us afterwards for a bite or a drink (or just to hang and chat!).
This is a FREE event, but we are humbly recommending a donation of between $10-$20 for the opportunity to see Kris’ music in such a uniquely intimate format!
