Kodo "DADAN 2015" Performances

"DADAN," meaning "drumming men," was designed by Tamasaburo Bando as a simultaneously raw and refined performance that features solely young male Kodo performers in a bold exploration of percussion instruments.

DADAN saw its world premiere in Tokyo in September 2009 and the production continues to evolve creatively on stage, gaining dynamism and power with each ninety-minute pulsating performance. One could say that this piece simultaneously tests the limits of a player's physique, technique, heart and mind.

We hope you will join us for the 2015 DADAN performances in June, exclusively at Asakusa Public Hall in Tokyo.
