Never afraid to push the boundaries in the taiko drumming world, Somei Yoshino Taiko Ensemble (SYTE) brings its signature style of performance to ODC Theater on September 16-17 8pm and September 18, 2:00pm.Focus your eyes into the magnifying glass through time and space, as you enter the peculiar world of insects. SYTE, the internationally acclaimed taiko ensemble presents its newest full length work entitled /Time Cocoon/, dissecting the complex and sometimes bizarre microcosm of distinct cycles of birth, death and transformation. SYTE's original musical compositions feature Japanese taiko, shamisen, bamboo flute and a wide palette of world instruments.

Named after one of the most beautiful cherry blossom trees in Japan, SYTE was founded in 1999 and is comprised of four multi-faceted and classically trained artists. SYTE has established itself as one of the foremost taiko companies in the national scene and beyond. Their music is "at times elegant and subtle, at times spare and simple, at other times complex, multi-layered ... a live performance is even richer and more nuanced and exposes the full beauty of their arrangements and choreography, visuals and props, movement and expression." Well known for pulling out all the stops, theirs is a complete theatrical event from start to finish --- the SYTE artists literally flow through the performance, hailed by audiences as thrilling, dynamic and visually stunning. The result is a riveting performance art.

Time Cocoon: presented by Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center with funding from the San Francisco Arts Commission Cultural Equity Grants Program and Zellerbach Family Foundation with additional support from ODC Theater.
