19 Jul 2019 to 27 Jul 2019


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 score by John Cleworth, The Beauty Of 8 is an irresistible combination that makes for a truly unique theatrical experience.
