Taikoz 20

20 takes you on a rich sonic and visual journey. We are immensely proud of the achievements of Taikoz over the past two decades, and this is a celebration of our work that we couldn’t be more excited to share with our audience. And of course, in true Taikoz style, we’ll also be breaking new ground through truly exciting new collaborations with Sandy Evans and Chongwei Zhang.” Ian Cleworth, Artistic Director of Taikoz

2017 marks Taikoz’s 20th year of incredible music making and performance. To celebrate this outstanding achievement, Australia’s internationally acclaimed drumming ensemble presents a spectacular evening of music and movement.

Drawing on the theme of Land-Sea-Sky, much of the music celebrates, takes inspiration from, and expresses the very essence of ‘land-ness’, ‘sea-ness’ & ‘sky-ness’. A fourth scene was born out of an inescapable thought: “what about those people who have been separated from their country, culture, families and friends, and who are deprived the ability and right to ‘celebrate’, ‘be inspired by’, ‘express the essence of’, or indeed simply ‘experience’ land, sea & sky?” And so, the words of Iranian poet and one-time asylum seeker Mohsen Soltani Zand inspired the creation of a new work by Sandy Evans, specially commissioned for the concert.

20: Land-Sea-Sky-Home sees Taikoz perform a wide range of music for taiko, percussion, and voice, along with the sublime artistry of Riley Lee (shakuhachi) and Sandy Evans (saxophone), and beguiling movement choreographed by Tai Chi master Chongwei Zhang.
