The performers of TAO create an unforgettable production that combines ultra-physical, large-scale drumming with contemporary costumes, dynamic choreography, and innovative visuals. Established in Japan's Aichi region in 1995, TAO's creative production center is now on Kyushu Island, site of the legendary Aso Kuju National Park.
