At the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
TaiwanFest presents Ju Percussion
From Taiwan, Ju Percussion Group: after thirty years its footprints have crossed the world, using its music to convey and touch on innumerable emotions and memories. Praised and received with adoration not only by local Taiwan audiences, but international ones as well.
With their diverse range of instruments - from Western percussion to Chinese gong-drums to Nanguan/Beiguan music - the group showcases their internationally-renowned skills at a range of grand annual performances and brand-new productions. The ensemble constantly adopts unorthodox means to create music - from employing tubs of water to using their own bodies. Accompanied by their showmanship and theatrical flair, they go beyond the ubiquitous West and East styles. Ju Percussion in taking an under-represented section of musical instruments, and bringing it in a whole new musical direction.
Sharing the emotions of the rhythm, let percussion transform itself to be an unyielding source of creative energy and the medium of cultural exchange, and let the cultural art of Taiwan unleash its emotional furor to become a catalyst of energy whose vibration touches the world.
Reserve seats for $9 or buy a VIP package. Free seats will be available at the door on a first-come-first-served basis.
