Step for Four: Rhythm in Motion

October 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$15

Virtuoso performers – including Omaha Symphony’s new Assistant Principal Percussionist, Derek Dreier – promise visual excitement, brilliant technique, and a sonic world like no other. Cutting edge works for a breathtaking panorama of percussion instruments, electronics, and some unexpected “found” instruments are guaranteed to open and delight your ears in Step for Four, the striking start to our 2017-18 Eko Nova season at KANEKO!

From the intricate rhythms of Cuban batá drums evoking ancient religious rituals and the playful sound palette of Alan Keown’s Tink (think: incredibly talented kids using your kitchen as their drum set) to Sarah Wald’s Pas de Quatre, inspired by the dynamic relationship between dance, movement, and percussion; Derek’s own Snap Crackle, a tribute to jazz legend Roy Haynes; and much more. This show connects with your pulse…the drum within you.

PS: KANEKO’s amazing KINETIC Exhibition, is a perfect partner and backdrop for our performance.
