A four-week series on Thursdays, October 18, 25, Nov 1 and 8.
Rage drumming was catapulted to the forefront of consciousness through the necessity of embodying our feelings and emotions. It is a practice of embodying and releasing internalized feelings and emotions through the simple act of hitting a pillow continuously with a set of drumsticks. Emoting, breathing, and verbalizing these feelings in unison with the embodied act of rage drumming is strongly encouraged. Rage drumming centers on four areas of focus: breathing, emoting, embodiment, and self-reflection. The workshop is broken into four units, with each of these topics serving as an area of focus. Conversation and discussion is ongoing throughout each of these units, but discussions will be centered on these areas of focus.
