Taiko Meantime with guest Cheiko Kojima presents ‘Dojoji’
A collaborative project melding Taiko and contemporary dance and with veteran Kodo drummer and dancer Chieko Kojima, in a unique interpretation of the famous Japanese legend 'Dojoji'.

After studying with Japanese drum masters in Japan, Mark Alcock founded  Taiko Meantime in Greenwich in 2001, performing Japanese Taiko drumming in a  highly theatrical style, as anyone who saw their enthralling performances at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics will attest.

They’ve toured extensively in a collaborative project melding Taiko and contemporary dance and with veteran Kodo drummer and dancer Chieko Kojima, in a unique interpretation of the famous Japanese legend ‘Dojoji’.

Their shows have found acclaim in front of the most demanding audiences in Japan itself, while their outreach project in the WOMAD workshop tent has been a festival highlight for several years.
