Named for 'the land of Yamato," the birthplace of Japanese culture, the Yamato Drummers travel all over the word with Japan's traditional Wadaiko drums, putting their very souls into the unusual instruments. These sounds evoke what the Japanese call "Tamashy," translated as soul, spirit, and psyche - the basic elements of life. It is something that is invisible and intangible, but whose existence is certainly felt. Don't miss the opportunity to experience this pulse for yourself, as it is known to resonate within all bodies gathered at any given performance. Tickets start at $29, and are available online at zeiterion.org, by phone at 508-994-2900.
More than a half century after WWII, at the desperate urging of a passionate survivor (played by Ed Asner), a young investigative reporter finds herself caught between numerous versions of the same story. Against the backdrop of deadline reporting and journalistic integrity, the critically-acclaimed The Soap Myth by Jeff Cohen questions who has the right to write history - those people who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort its very existence? And what is our responsibility once we know the truth? The performance will be followed by a moderated Q&A Session that includes playwright Jeff Cohen.
