Drummer Queens

Lyric Theatre

Sydney, Australia

February 10, 2021

Quite a telling name Drummer Queens is, i.e. an all-female cast showcasing a tour de force in terms of powerful rhythms based on drumming, tap dancing and everything in between. In a well-choreographed manner, this original Australian brings to the fore not just a musical but also physical feats and hijinks.

Empowering in every sense of the word, the Sydney incarnation of the eight percussionist is comprised of a smorgasbord of musical styles and genres, pushing boundaries of what is commonly perceived to be possible and with high energy radiating consistently from stage.

The pedigree, backgrounds and professional expertise of each performer outside the confines of mere drumming shines through, e.g. orchestral engagements, actively and professionally playing instruments, acting and other related artistic stage incarnations.

With the better parts being reminiscent of the fantastic Korean Nanta show, minus the inventive use of household and other utensils, Drummer Queens is a vibrant and engaging evening full of rhythms, groove and musicianship and the audience seemed to revel in every ounce of energy with every reverberating beat and was eager to join in with clapping whenever prompted. An example par excellence for a banging time and our human response to sound and expression through performance art
