-Reviewers Opinion

Synergy remounted their fantastic concert 'Matsuri', a performance of dynamic percussion and dance inspired by Japan. 'Matsuri', meaning "festival", was inspired by the ancient system of telling time. In Japanese villages the beginning and the end of each day was marked by the playing of drums and gongs - thus SYNERGY lead the audience on a journey through the 24hours of one day.
