Kagemusha Taiko: Shadow Warrior
Sat 04 Jan 2020
Kagemusha Taiko present an exciting new show.
Taiko is drum theatre. Using taiko, Kagemusha Taiko create moods, explore the tension between space and time, and tell stories. ‘Shadow Warrior‘ is the English translation of the Japanese ‘Kagemusha’ and under the artistic direction of Jonathan Kirby, this show is about Western European myths, legends and magick.
Incorporating bass guitar and vocals, the second half of the show represents a departure from conventional taiko drumming, including guest artist Tim Kirby who is currently leading Bristol-based band Brutal Wounds. Brothers Jonathan and Tim were once known as Diatribe (John Peel favourites, back in the day). ‘Art should comfort the disturbed, and disturb the comfortable‘.
