【TAIKO as PERFORMING ARTS】

​Taiko as an Expression on Stage: Its Development and Future

Roughly half a century since the creation of the form of taiko known as "kumi-daiko," it has become common for performances to take place in theater halls for an admission fee; however, it is rare for these expressions to be critiqued in the same manner as other performing arts, such as classical music, ballet, kabuki, and Noh, and it would be difficult to say that taiko is regarded in similar esteem as a genre of performing arts. In this Premium Talk, we discuss the development of taiko as a performing art along with the possibilities and challenges of further development.
