BEAVER CREEK — Athletic bodies and contemporary costumes meet explosive taiko drumming and innovative choreography on tonight at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek for TAO’s performance of “Phoenix Rising.”
The stars of TAO live and train at a compound in the mountains of Japan, reaching the highest level of virtuosity only after years of intensive study. The performers each bring nontraditional flair to the group by drawing on their diverse backgrounds: one a hard rock musician, another a gymnast and another as a composer. They offer a young and vibrantly modern take on a traditional art form.
TAO has proven that modern entertainment based on the traditional art of Japanese drumming has massive international appeal.
“We look forward to bringing TAO back to the Vilar Center,” said Kris Sabel, executive director. “Their last performance here was phenomenal, and we brought them back because they are truly at the top of their game and a great option for audience members of all ages.”
