Drum and Dance Sensation
TARARAM is a creative ensemble of performing artists who produce extraordinary sounds from ordinary objects. A blend of rhythm, music, movement and wit; interwoven with choreographed body drumming, amusing sounds and theatrical antics. Tararam uses industrial tools, suspended drums, percussion and the most basic instrument of all, their bodies.
Workshops and audience participation
Tararam’s workshops are an energetic and uplifting experience for both the body and the soul! They combine the various performance skills of the group including body drumming and the use of everyday objects such as brooms, barrels and chairs to produce different sounds. Inspired by the multiculturalism that exists in Israel, Tararam incorporates various cultural and ethnic influences, producing a powerful global rhythm that connects all human beings.
Tararam Kids is a series of musical theater performances for children between the ages of 4 and 14. The musicals are filled with wonderful dance and song scenes alongside educational themes and delightful story lines. Throughout the show, the children experience the joy of creating music and having fun from simply playing on everyday items such as cans, brooms and especially their bodies. The various Tararam Kids’ performances include scenes with audience participation that captivate young audiences and energize them to the point that they leave the theater with a strong desire to dance, sing and drum on everything and anything!
About the group
TARARAM is a creative ensemble of performing artists who produce extraordinary sounds from ordinary objects. A blend of rhythm, music, movement and wit; interwoven with choreographed body drumming, amusing sounds and theatrical antics. Tararam uses industrial tools, suspended drums, percussion and the most basic instrument of all, their bodies. The group more than lives up to its name, which in Hebrew means hubbub or commotion, as it assaults your senses and awakens your natural impulse to tap your feet, clap your hands and basically beat on anything and everything you find on the way out of the theater.
Since the group’s premiere performance at the 1997 Israel Festival of Stage Arts, Tararam has pursued an international touring schedule. The International Music Fest in Ankara, Performing Arts Festival in Costa Rica, Summer Festival in Bogota, The Sibiu Theater Festival in Romania, Kulturfest NYC, Techfest in Mumbai, The Olympic Games in Greece and numerous International performances in Canada, Finland, Korea, Germany and USA are a number of the events in which Tararam has participated in over the years. Recently, the group participated in high profile “Ted X Tel Aviv” Events.
