Now celebrating their 40th anniversary, Kodo bring their spectacular Taiko drumming troupe to Sunderland. A breath-taking, highly choreographed and dynamic exploration of the limitless possibilities of the traditional Japanese drum.

“Tsuzumi” is the first of two commemorative works that will premiere in this milestone year. Kodo means ‘children of the drum’, and tsuzumi is an alternative reading of the kanji character for ‘drum’ in the group’s name.

The programme will feature iconic pieces and artistic direction that Kodo has honed for decades on stage. Coupled with compositions created in recent years, this theatre experience will leave audiences with a profound sense of Sado Island and Japan, as well as the depth and breadth of the Kodo ensemble.
