On Friday, August 26, 2022 at 9 p.m. at Olivedo in Varenna (Giardini area) there will be a performance with traveling drums by the Taiko Association of Lecco.
The proposed intervention is designed as a performance on the model of street theater.
The art of circus acts is intertwined with powerful Japanese percussion: the stage action moves and alternates with the sound of taiko drums played live. Directing and tying the thread of events is the Japanese folklore-inspired mask called Hyottoko with its characteristic funny expression. His dances are clumsy and ungainly, and the roles he plays are typical of folk and clown traditions.
The event was scheduled for July 16, 2022 but has been moved to August 26, 2022.
