Help us launch our taiko company's first original production!
Intricately weaving taiko, dance and theatre, 88: Hachi Hachi is a bold new theatrical work investigating the space that exists between two people. A duet, Michelle and Toru face each other through a rhythmic journey uncovering their entwined lineages and personal stories. 88: Hachi Hachi will premiere October 2, 3 and 4 in Portland, OR. The show is directed by Susan Banyas. Other contributors include choregrapher Eric Nordstrom, lighting designer Jeff Forbes and all around cheerleader Toni Tabora-Roberts.
88: Hachi Hachi is Unit Souzou's first original production. Help us get this story to the stage. Become one of our 88 friends at $33! Among other meanings, the number 88 is considered auspicious. And with your support, we know we will count ourselves lucky. Be one of our 88 friends and we will shower you with gratitude and an exciting, innovative taiko theatre show.
After 6 months of organizing, cleaning, demo-ing, constructing, building, we have finally remodeled our home. Our taiko can now fit through the door! Thank you to our 91 donors who helped us raise $10,000 to make this happen.
