Clash of Drums
Revoluton Arts presents Les Commandos Percu & Deabru Beltzak in DANBOR TALKA: Clash of Drums
This September Revoluton Arts brings an explosive, free, outdoor spectacular for all the family to Wardown Park, Luton. Watch international artists Les Commandos Percu & Deabru Beltzak battle it out in a Clash of Drums, pyrotechnics and fireworks.
Out of nowhere, drummers march towards each other pounding stretched skins. Their drumsticks twirl, their colourful faces sizing each other up for a battle of rhythm and light. What will be the outcome of the clash? The sole purpose of this symbolic confrontation is to turn collision into interaction, to sublimate fury into language, to light the unifying fire that brings hearts together.
At the end of this not-to-be-missed-show, the blazing musicians climb onto the stage for a clash of drums. They light a huge fire that seems to burst from their instruments, as if every percussion note sparks an explosion in the starry sky. But this is just a transition point. The black and yellow devils again take to the street and disappear just as they came: surrounded by fire.
Clash of Drums is part of the Global Streets strategic touring programme supported by Arts Council England. Delivered with support from Luton Culture.
