Phantom Projects Theatre Group Presents Bataré,
The First Rock N’ Roll Taiko Drumming Show Live on Stage
La Mirada Theatre: February 24, 2018
Bataré, an all new live show introducing audiences to a world of modernized Taiko drumming, will perform at the La Mirada Theatre on February 24th, 2018 at 8:00pm. Eleven performers including an orchestral string section consisting of award winning Berklee College of Music Cellist, Xiangming Luo, and accomplished Carnegie Mellon University graduate Isabella Weiss, bring a fresh approach to musical theatre while accomplishing extraordinary physical feats and demonstrating extreme technical command over drums that tower above the audience. Similar to the genre-breaking productions Cirque du Soleil and Blue Man Group, Bataré bolsters a kinetic and breath-taking live show. Characters discover a new world where they leave their indelible mark on it forever.

“Bataré is a must-see show for a new century,” Nick Wylie, Executive Producer of Bataré. “This is a never-before-seen blend of adrenaline, drumming, elegant choreography, captivating storytelling, and an orchestral approach to rock ‘n’ roll, live on stage.” Bataré’s creative team of composers and prodigious melodists have attracted a cast of top flight international talent to deliver an extraordinary performance.
The cast includes a diverse mix of Taiko drummers and percussion masters; alumni from Berklee College of Music in Boston and Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles, an accomplished Japanese born composer and performer noted for her work in multiple award winning percussion shows, including TAP DOGS, a music therapist from Los Angeles, CA and a professional percussionist originally from Guam. All come together on stage for a show that goes the extra mile.
“Bataré is something that’s never been done before on stage, and it’s wild!” says Jay, a Blue Man Group alumn.
