In their new show TAO: Phoenix Rising, athletic bodies and contemporary costumes meet explosive Taiko drumming and innovative choreography full of extraordinary precision, energy and stamina. The stars of TAO live and train in the mountains of Japan, reaching the highest level of virtuosity after years of study.
TAO combines the traditional art of Japanese drumming with spectacular modern effects and brings nontraditional flair by drawing on members’ diverse backgrounds: one as a rock musician, another a gymnast and yet another as a composer. TAO offers a young and vibrantly modern take on traditional taiko.
