Atù: Drum King
January 12, 2018 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
In six brilliant scenes, the narrative of searching for identity, the difficulty of the search and the courage to hope. Inspired by an African folktale, Atú: Drum King is a vibrant interpretation of a tale past down generations. Director, Fernando Gomez, delivers a modern perspective by incorporating Contemporary issues.
Atú: Drum King is the story of the soul of a prince that never became king. The drumbeats serve as the vessel, as Atú’s soul travels through time to a longing future trapped in a dream, in a relentless search for kinfolk through history and current societal challenges. An experimental play, Drum King incorporates dynamic drumbeats dating centuries, infused with traditional and contemporary dance and spoken word. A creative set design, serves as the backdrop with eye-catching visuals and a dramatic feel.
