Hinotori (Phoenix)

Expect remarkable athleticism, high energy spectacle and drums that explode with energy. Passion meets tradition in a show which drums up the spirit of Japan.

Taiko drumming is a centuries-old tradition in Japanese culture, and the drummers of YAMATO continue to challenge the boundaries of what it can be. They push themselves to their absolute limits and leave audiences breathless in the process.

After a successful run at the Peacock in 2019, YAMATO return to London in 2024 with their latest show. This new work marks the 30th anniversary of the company and celebrates the group’s tours and performances in around 54 different countries and regions, with over 4,500 performances that reached almost 8 million people.

With that unwavering aspiration, YAMATO continues its odyssey with taiko drums.

Image description: One large drum is being held up by two performers at the left side of this image. In the centre is the drummer who is holding two large sticks, one raised ready to beat and the other near the drum. They all have dark hair and look fierce. The backdrop includes a Japanese symbol in red and white and there is fire spiralling off the drummer in red, orange and yellow tones.
