Shadow Warrior

About

Tickets are now on sale for the exciting new show from Kagemusha Taiko, the first major performance by the group in Exeter since "A Good Death" in Exeter Cathedral in December 2017.

Taiko is drum theatre. Using taiko, Kagemusha Taiko create moods, explore the tension between space and time, and tell stories. "Shadow Warrior" is the English translation of "Kagemusha", and this show is very much Western European in nature, drawing on stories of Merlin, Beowulf and Norse mythology. There's new instrumentation as well as new themes in this show…

Shadow Warrior reunites Kagemusha Taiko with original group member Kordian Tetkov. Having been spellbound by a solo performance by Kordian on gongs and percussion, artistic director Jonathan Kirby invited him to collaborate with the group for this one, special performance. Drums and gongs together weave a particular kind of magic. Don't miss it!

In the second half of the show, this particular taiko journey heads into new territory with the addition of bass guitar and vocals. Back in the day, brothers Jonathan and Tim Kirby performed to critical acclaim as Diatribe, with releases on the Criminal Damage record label and John Peel session on BBC Radio 1 to their credit. Tim now brings his voice and his bass to the world of taiko. It's a powerful combination.

Tickets are limited, so book now in order to avoid disappointment.
