Athletic bodies and innovative costumes meet explosive Taiko drumming and pioneering choreography in this spectacular expression of the power of rhythm. TAO: Phoenix Rising features a number of expert musicians who play with acrobat-like grace, demonstrating extreme precision, energy, and stamina. TAO melds modern entertainment with the traditional art of Japanese percussion for a show that has massive international appeal.

The stars of the show live and train at a compound in the mountains of Japan. Only after years of intensive study will they reach the highest level of virtuosity. Many of the performers in TAO help to bring a nontraditional flair to the group by drawing on their diverse backgrounds: one as a gymnast, another a composer, and yet another as a hard rock musician.
