Kodo
Directed by Tamasaburo Bando

“Superlatives don't really exist to convey the primal power and bravura beauty of Kodo.”
—Chicago Tribune

Emanating an ancient cavernous thunder, a group of disciplined, muscled bodies pound traditional Japanese drums with sticks the size of a forearm. In Dadan, Japan’s preeminent taiko ensemble showcases the spectacular sonic possibilities of these time-honored instruments, supplemented with cymbals, xylophone, and more. Led by Kabuki theater luminary Tamasaburo Bando, the members of Kodo (Kodo One Earth Tour: Mystery, 2015 Winter/Spring) summon decades of training to exalt the drum in this tightly choreographed pageant of percussion.
