Taikoz 20: Land-Sea-Sky-Home


We’ve lived the journey, now it’s your chance to see it through our eyes. 20 takes you on a guided flight not to be missed” Ian Cleworth, Artistic Director

2017 marks Taikoz’s 20th year of incredible music making and performance. To celebrate this outstanding achievement, Australia’s internationally acclaimed drumming ensemble presents a spectacular evening of music and movement. Drawing on the theme of Land-Sea-Sky, much of the music celebrates, takes inspiration from, and expresses the very essence of ‘land-ness’, ‘sea-ness’ and ‘sky-ness’.

A fourth scene was born out of an inescapable thought: “what about those people who have been separated from their country, culture, families and friends, and who are deprived the ability and right to ‘celebrate’, ‘be inspired by’, ‘express the essence of’, or indeed simply ‘experience’ land, sea and sky?” And so, the words of Iranian poet and one-time asylum seeker Mohsen Soltani Zand inspired the creation of a new work by Sandy Evans, especially commissioned for the concert.

20: Land-Sea-Sky-Home sees Taikoz perform a wide range of music for taiko, percussion and voice, along with the sublime artistry of Riley Lee (shakuhachi) and Sandy Evans (saxophone), and beguiling movement choreographed by Tai Chi master Chongwei Zhang.

Duration: approximately 110 minutes, including a 20 minute interval
