TAO: Seventeen Samurai

  • What it is: a traditional Japanese drumming performance with pops of 21st Century flair
  • The sights: elaborate costumes, precisely choreographed dances, and muscles—so many muscles
  • The sounds: thunderous taiko drums and passionate, near-militaristic chanting
  • How it all started: In 2004, TAO appeared at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe—arguably the world’s largest arts festival—and stole the show, leading to a world tour and appearance at the Vancouver Olympics in 2010.
  • By the numbers: The show has travelled to more than 22 countries and 400 cities, it has dazzled nearly 7 million spectators, and it has probably inspired at least one person to incorporate drumming into their workout routine.

The Carolina Theatre of Durham

One of the few original theaters in Durham to remain in operation, The Carolina Theatre has endured more than 85 years of history in its quest to entertain. The venue's main room, Fletcher Hall, rose in popularity during World War II, when soldiers from Camp Butner arrived by bus to watch films on its colossal screen. In the last three decades, ongoing renovations have restored the venue to its original glory while propelling it into contemporary times with the addition of modern accoutrements, including two upstairs movie screens, stage-level dressing rooms, and landing pads on the roof for skateboard hovercrafts.
