This Is My Drum is the culmination of a personal journey taken through the female experience of blood and spirit. It confronts a deeply contradictory encounter with identity while breathing through this moment in time called Canada.
The stories we don’t tell revealed in an intimate solo sharing becoming and knowing. It honours the thundering silence and the dancing through that connects to prayer when there is little left to say about anything.
This performance constructs the body as drum and the drum as vessel, a vessel that holds the voice of our own remembering, while the body stands at the crossroads of renewal and decay.
