CLAIRE ROUSAY (SOLO PERCUSSION - SAN ANTONIO, TX)
Claire Rousay is an improviser, percussionist, and event organizer based in San Antonio, Texas. Rousay explores the emotional overlap of rhythm, speed, and texture as both a soloist and participant in creative partnerships that span North America. Drawing liberatory power and ethical commitment from queer theory, Rousay's improvisational style employs a critique of the relationship between masculinity and percussion.
Since entering the improvising community, Rousay has toured extensively across North America, booking 220 dates in 2017 alone. Her travels have found her performing with a range of collaborators, including Tom Carter, Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten, Michael Foster, Jacob Wick, and Brandon Lopez. This last year Rousay participated in the Sonic Transmissions Festival and NMASS Festival as well as performed at venues such as Elastic Arts and Issue Project Room. Her work recently received support from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
