“DADAN 2017” Japan Tour

Kodo One Earth Tour

“DADAN,” simply meaning “drumming men,” features a select cast of young male Kodo performers in a bold exploration of powerful percussion. For two pulsating hours, this production simultaneously tests the limits of each player’s strength, mind, perseverance, and endurance.

“DADAN 2017” is the latest manifestation of this dynamic work, which has continued to evolve with every performance since its 2009 debut in Japan. DADAN has received acclaim from international audiences in Spain, France, Hong Kong, Brazil, and most recently in the USA. We are pleased to announce that DADAN 2017 will tour extensively throughout Japan from October this year.
