The Beauty Of 8
Date/Time: 27 Jul 2019 - 27 Jul 2019
Presented by: Taikoz
Approximate running time: 1 hours, 20 minutes.
Internationally renowned performing ensemble Taikoz presents The Beauty Of 8, featuring Guest Artists dancer-drummer Chieko Kojima of the famed KODO taiko group and Shakuhachi Grand Master Riley Lee. Ex-Taikoz dynamo Anton Lock also returns to Australia to join Taikoz in a production that pulsates with energy and balances the Yin and Yang through the mystical vibrations of Chieko’s Shinto-inspired dance and Riley’s unearthly shakuhachi, and the sonic boom of six Odaiko Grand Drums.
The Beauty Of 8 shines a light on Chieko’s powerful, mesmerising Beauty of Figure-Of-Eight taiko-drumming – is it dance, is it drumming? Coupled with Taikoz’s explosive taiko-drums, Riley’s sublime shakuhachi, Anton’s uber-rhythmic percussion vocals, and a cinematic electronica.
This event is suitable for all ages, but recommended for 8 years and up. Children under 4 years of age admitted free of charge if seated on parents lap.
At the request of the presenter, no cameras (video or still) or recording devices are permitted to be used inside the auditorium for this event.
