'Drumstruck' is now booking to the 20 Nov 2005

Wed 20 Jul 2005 'Drumstruck' is now booking to the 20 Nov 2005 Drumstruck, the world's first interactive drum-theatre experience, is now booking to the 20 Nov 2005 at Doger's Stage 2. The show opened on the 12 May 2005. Drumstruck�is the world's first interactive drum-theatre experience, direct from sold-out engagements in Johannesburg, South Africa and Sydney, Australia.��The show provides a 2-foot-tall drum on every seat - and the entire audience gets the chance to make music together. Drumstruck is the brainchild of drum enthusiast Warren Lieberman, who started the phenomenon in 1997 by inviting strangers into his Lieberman Drum Cafe in Johannesburg to join him in beating a drum. The fascination took hold and soon he couldn't contain the crowds. Lieberman's Drum Cafe has provided 25,000 drums for a drum circle at a South African rugby match, and audience members have included Nelson Mandela, Queen Elizabeth and President George W. Bush. Drumstruck, directed by David Warren, features 11 South and West African percussionists: Nicholas 'Africa' Djanie, Ayanda, Sebone 'Dzwanyudzwanyu' Rangata, Enock Bafana Mahlangu, Tiny Modise, Richard Carter, Nomvula Gerashe, Themba Kubheka, Ronald Thabo Medupe, Molutsi Mogami and Molebeledi 'Sponch' Mogapi. The cast start the show with a song, dance and eye blurring drum performances, before leading the audience in an experience of African drumming. (For tickets and more information click here)
