“Dynamic, electrifying vision…nothing will prepare you for the precise timing or the wall of sound. An essential experience…” Time Out

The phenomenal Japanese taiko drumming company Kodo return to the UK with the thrilling new production, Mystery, a dramatic mix of storytelling, music, dance and drama reflecting the beauty and mystery of Japanese traditions throughout the ages.

Amidst reverberations like rumbles in the earth, large serpents coil, demons and lions move wildly. They surface from the gloomy dark, eerie and nostalgic… Mystery fuses the dynamism of taiko expression with the wondrous beauty thats lie within rituals expressing the worship of myriad gods and reverence for nature that have been traditions in Japan since ancient times. This performance takes you on a voyage to the extraordinary, to a mysterious realm that lies in the beyond…

Featuring fifteen highly trained Taiko performers, Mystery is the second touring work to be directed by the company’s Artistic Director, the celebrated Kabuki actor Tamasaburo Bando.

Based on Sado Island in Japan, Kodo made its debut in 1981 at the Berlin Festival. Since then they have vigorously worked with many taiko drums as well as other traditional instruments and have toured extensively across five continents.
