Abstract Touring presents


Saturday 16 May 07:00 PM

The brainchild of the Drum Cafe's Warren Lieberman and co-created with Kathy-Jo Wein, Drumstruck premiered in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2002. It has since become a phenomenon, touring the world with shows in New York, Japan, Australia, China, Vietnam, and South Africa.

The show was billed as the first interactive drum-theatre experience, and has won over audiences world-wide with its exhilarating presentation of African beats and explosive energy. This one of a kind show provides every audience member with a drum to play along with the on stage performers.

For the fifth year in a row the smash hit musical Drumstruck toured Japan in 2012. Playing to sold out houses and receiving standing ovations at every venue, this unique phenomenon, rooted in African culture, is a thoroughly engaging spectacle that provides the audience with an hour and of pure interactive fun and entertainment that is perfect for the whole family.


Delighted children and scores of adults banged away on the drum clutched tightly between their legs as if newly releases from an asylum…[the] performers demonstrate not only amazing rhythmic abilities, but also enough high energy, athleticism and charisma to make a compelling case for drumming as a future Olympic event.
