On March 9, TAO: The Way of the Drum performs in Louisville's Brown Theatre. The stunning stage show combines twenty highly-trained and ferociously athletic musicians performing Japanese Taiko drumming, tempered by Korean, Maori, and Indonesian rhythms - with tightly choreographed martial arts and dance.
Arisa Nishi, one of seven female TAO members, has been with the troupe since she was 11 years old. She reminds audiences that Taiko is never just about "playing loud and hard. The drums can also make subtle, comforting sounds, like a heartbeat. Our performance is meant to be spiritual and it is not uncommon to see rows of people exhilirated - crying happy tears- at the end of a show."
Tickets for this performance start at $15, reserved seating, fees apply. Standard tickets available online, by phone (502.584.7777, 502.562.0730 TTY), and in-person at The Kentucky Center box office. Tickets available at the Brown Theatre box office one hour prior to curtain on day of show.
