Spotlight on: National Theatre Wales, Feral Monster

Feral Monster follows Jax and her noisy, opinionated brain as they navigate love, identity, class and family. Mashing up grime, R&B, soul, pop and rap, the soundtrack takes us from the high highs to low lows of the hormonal rollercoaster of adolescence.

What is Taiko drumming? 

Taiko is the Japanese word for drum and refers to the modern style of playing these drums. It is a collection of movement infused, heart pounding, dynamic group drumming.
