“An…explosive exploration of percussion set to the tense groove of civil unrest.” - Limelight Magazine

Disruption! The Voice of Drums explores the power of the drum; as a force for disruption and protest, ceremony and healing, and creating ecstatic and transcendental experiences.

Drums have always been a vital cultural element during periods of dramatic change, most recently featured in protests across the world – from Hong Kong to Russia to the United States.

Composer-saxophonist Jeremy Rose is joined by two virtuoso drummers, Simon Barker and his protégé Chloe Kim, alongside the Earshift Orchestra and powerful images by video artists Rachel Peachey and Paul Mosig, to present a thrilling tribute to the timeless, visceral and disruptive power of the drum.
