TAO: The Art of the Drum
February 10 - 14
An energetic cross between gymnastics and drumming, TAO is a taiko drumming tour de force. Its performers live and train in the mountains of Japan, honing their skills and assimilating a wide range of disciplines and styles — ranging from rock music, gymnastics, and martial arts to original choreography, African djembe drumming, and more. This is a theatrical spectacle of rhythm and movement, setting centuries-old traditions in a current context for modern kids. Two Bay Area performances will be given, one in San Rafael and one at Stanford Lively Arts.
