After five years, STRIKE Percussion are back in Wellington with IN THE CUBE
Last seen on the theatre stage in their hometown of Wellington in 2002, Strike are excited to be back giving local audiences their first and only opportunity to experience their acclaimed stage show “IN THE CUBE”.
Founding Director Murray Hickman says “ it has been frustrating to have taken so long to share with our local community what we have been so successfully doing everywhere else,. but we’re proudly back for this one night!”
Founded in 1993, New Zealand’s prestigious percussion group have recently been performing ‘IN THE CUBE’, to significant acclaim at international and New Zealand festivals including Cervantino International Festival in Mexico, Queensland Music Festival 2005, Taiwan International Percussion Convention 2005/06 and Festival Melbourne 2006.
The Wellington performance precedes their next international season from March through to May, which involves an extensive performing schedule in China, and a season in Hong Kong.
Other International appearances have included shows in London and Manchester, Journees de la Percussion in Paris, and the Melbourne International Arts Festival .
“IN THE CUBE” is based around Strike’s trademark ‘cubes,’ an imposing scaffolding set adorned with a myriad of traditional and non traditional percussion instruments from cymbals and drums to dippaphones and hubcaps.
The five performers combine elements of theatre, dance, invention and rhythmic intricacy to create a powerful and imaginative production that has wowed critics and audiences alike. With spectacular and inventive use of the elements of fire, water, air, earth and the steel of the cubes, and encompassing a broad variety of musical, choreographic and theatrical influences, the stage show is an exhilarating and high-energy experience”.
