When 4 researchers-percussionists are hit by the moon, they lend themselves to funny games. Drum skins make a frantic dance and a triangle is a cause of trouble! Will the mystery of the moon be unraveled or is it the groove that leads to peace?
Drumblebee a musical and well-paced show. Drumblebee is a flight of bumblebees full of virtuosity, which combines rhythm and movement, archaic force and playful joy, tempo and spontaneity in a concert-show for percussion, without words. The musical protagonists, the four drums of the Parisian Quatuor Beat, are supported by Luxembourg director Dan Tanson and Austrian choreographer Ela Baumann, who already enthused young audiences last summer with “Rocky Rococo”.
