Busu the damask drum

7:30pm - 9:30pm / £10

Inspired on Zeami’s Aya No Tsuzumi, Busu and the Damask Drum was originally adapted by Yukio Mishima for the modern stage. Hailed as a double bill of miniature Japanese gems, Busu is a classic Kyogen farce and the Damask Drum is a tragic ghost story.

This production takes an irreverent, playful approach on the traditional Japanese forms. It incorporates Awa Dance (Japanese summer folkloric dance), Taiko drumming, traditional Noh and contemporary Japanese practices to create a show that is fun, celebratory and thought-provoking.
