ASCENT will be a 45 minute music and dance-theatre event collaboratively written and performed by Adam Kerbel and Taiko drum artist Shih-wei Willie Wu, designed by Brandon Baruch.

Part concert, part intervention, ASCENT (working title) features daring physicality and an improvised drum score illuminating the inglorious fragility of the male psyche. Set in a psychological space constructed of sound and movement, ASCENT is a dancing autopsy performed by two men addressing the shifting states of their vulnerability to themselves. Sensorily fragile, ASCENT is a hike through images, emotion, and earnest audience interaction to learn to love and be loved by the mature masculine within.
