Taiko drums echo like thunder in Tao’s high-octane show, filled with a cast of performers who train for years in the mountains of Japan

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.

Mayo Performing Arts Center

The Mayo Performing Arts Center straddles time. While one foot is planted in the old-fashioned charm of the 1930s movie-palace golden age, the other is firmly in the tech-savvy modern day. Between is a stretch of history that saw the theatre fall into disrepair and then resurrect itself to its star-studded heyday thanks to volunteers. Since its 1994 rebirth, the center has welcomed everyone from the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg to Ringo Starr and Aretha Franklin. But, if the Mayo Center were a tripod, its third foot would certainly reach toward the future—a suite of education studios is onsite to cultivate the next generation of performers.
