I'm inviting you all to be a part of an epic and unique collaboration with Dance North, to bring drum and dance alive!!! An opportunity to experience and be a part of something BIG!
15 Minutes of beautiful and chaotic NOISE!
The production is called NOISE
The Venue will be Queens Gardens ( 15 Paxton St, North Ward ) under the stars and there will be 4 performance nights.
A. Yes 6 nights straight. Will get more info as to how long we'll be needed as our scene is only 15 minutes. If you can't make all of these nights that's ok, there's 99 others to fill in the gap ;)
A. It will be myself and our Team Leaders working closely with Amber from Dance North.
A. Some drums will be provided/hired and some will need to be your own. I think between us all we can rally up the right drums.
During our first session on the 2nd of June we will have a meet and greet, most of us will know each other. Team Leaders will be selected prior to date and assemble/create our Percussion Orchestra. ( Taiko, Snares, Junk Percussion, Floor Toms, Djembe, Dun Dun, Buckets, Shakers, Vocal, Drum kits, etc etc )
Sheet music and audio files will be provided so you can rehearse at home during the months of June/July.
You will not be required to drum for the entire 15 minute performance, just like a Conventional Orchestra, you'll have your moments to shine.
We'll need at least 6 rehearsals together to be tight on the night. Expecting huge crowds i'm told.
You will be needed for 90 minute Rehearsals on these dates. Don't stress if you can't make them all, however 4 out of 6 of these dates will be a minimum so please try to be at every one you can.
* Recordings of rehearsals will be made available to everyone.
All details and requirements will be on this sheet.
Now it's time to fill out the application form.
I'm really looking forward to hearing from you and hope you are as excited as i am to hear the thunder of a 100 drummers in unison drumming hard!!! This is going to be huge!! :)
We'll be having our own Drummers After Party to celebrate the event when the production is finished. We'll throw around some ideas and finalize what we're going to do by the 14th of July.
