To celebrate Rugby World Cup 2015, the streets of Milton Keynes will become the setting for an explosive and thrilling outdoor spectacular as international companies Les Commandos Percu (from France) and Deabru Beltzak (from the Basque region of Spain) do battle in Clash of Drums / Danbor Talka.
The two tribes will meet in a cataclysmic collision of fast and frenzied drumming, war-like chanting, fireworks, pyrotechnics and fiercely dramatic movement.
Setting off from Lloyds Court (Friday 2 October) and Campbell Park (Saturday 3 October), crowds can follow the combat action as it sweeps through the streets of Milton Keynes towards a fiery finale next to The Point. There, the fury of the devilish war-painted forces is finally transformed into a common energy - unified by fire.
This free event is not to be missed!
Les Commandos Percu will be joined by a team of eight UK and Milton Keynes-based pyrotechnic artists who will train with the company and perform in Clash of Drums / Danbor Talka as part of an international professional development programme delivered by The Stables, IF: Milton Keynes International Festival and Festive Road.
Produced by The Stables and IF: Milton Keynes International Festival. Commissioned by The Parks Trust Ltd with support from Arts Council England, Rugby World Cup 2015 and Milton Keynes Council.
