Through powerful Japanese Taiko drums, exquisite flutes, sizzling percussion and dynamic movement, Taiko.
Meantime brings an epic musical journey to Blackheath Halls on December 1.
The show explores the concept of resonance through Japanese Taiko: the vibrations of one instrument affecting another; the exuberance of a single player energising the whole group, and the force of many performers together shaking the audience both physically and emotionally.
The production’s visual and musical elements are ravishing and fearsome, beautiful and fun.
With new repertoire ranging from delicate composition to explosive chest-thumping taiko barnstormers, this show promises to be a feast for the ears and eyes.
As well as Blackheath Halls, the tour will visit local schools for educational Taiko drumming workshops.
This will inspire children with an insight into the Japanese drumming while they benefit from skills like rhythm, movement, teamwork and performance.
Mark Alcock, who studied Taiko in Japan and has been a frontman of Taiko Meantime for 18 years, said: “Resonance is an amazing spectacle. I’m so proud and excited to be bringing a new Taiko show to our home town in Greenwich, with enticing new pieces.
We want to take the audience on a musical journey with twists and turns, light and shade but, above all, lots of fun along the way.
“We’re really excited to be returning to the area, having sold out Greenwich Theatre twice in the past.”
