This explosive ensemble has brought its mind-blowing taiko drumming to more than five million spectators worldwide in the last decade, and now it makes its Hylton Center debut with "Phoenix Rising." In this electrifying new production, athletic bodies, innovative choreography and traditional Japanese drumming combine to create an experience that will take your breath away. The performers of TAO undergo rigorous training in drumming, exercise and meditation at a Japanese mountain compound to reach the highest level of virtuosity. These drummers, both male and female, draw upon their diverse backgrounds as rock musicians, gymnasts and composers to create a fresh, new interpretation of this ancient art form. “Extraordinarily talented …incomparable muscular zeal.” (Chicago Tribune)
