Drum Casket Guidelines: What to expect?

The Drum Casket event is an experience with a small group centered around Amery Kessler's artwork, Drum Casket, a drum the size and shape of a casket. While the word "casket" has an obvious connotation, the term is also the name of a box used for holding valuables. As an attendee, you are invited to participate in any or all of three ways. 1) Lie inside the drum while others play. 2) Play on the outside of the drum. 3) Simply observe and be attentive. Amery will facilitate this experience by offering simple instructions that will allow for confident and interconnected participation.
