Les Commandos Percu: Silence!

FREE event

Before the storm, there is silence!

And then a slow, muffled rolling of drums pulls the audience towards a large, volcanic–like sculpture. As the drummers become one with the twisted metal mountain, the sky is set alight and the volcano erupts in a dazzling finale.

Last seen in Milton Keynes performing Clash of Drums during the Rugby World Cup in 2015, French company Les Commandos Percu fuse innovative percussion, extraordinary special effects and pyrotechnics to create an astounding wave of energy on the opening night of this year’s Festival.

Silence! is a co-production with Big Drum & Festival International des Arts de la Rue de Chassepierre.

Supported by Théâtre Le Liburnia - Ville de Libourne, Le Rio Grande - Scène de Musiques Actuelles de Montauban, la Communauté de Communes des Côteaux Bellevue, la Ville de Toulouse, la Région Midi-Pyrénées, le Département de la Haute-Garonne et Rythmes et Sons - Strasbourg.
