Drummers, storytellers, and athletes-the members of Gugu Drum group direct from Shanghai, China will engage audiences with their high-energy theatrical drum drama. The show features drum vignettes accompanied by projections based on timeless Chinese proverbs, fables, and fairy tales. Director Yang Xiaodong utilizes authentic ancient drum movements as well as the ancient drums to depict historical and culturally significant drum compositions that present profound insight into unity, human evolution, awareness, wisdom, social commitment, and communication through percussive movements.
