With energetic dance, thundering drums and culturally unique costumes, this will be night that will show the audience why Okinawa is known as an "Island of performing arts." Okinawa is the home to a powerful, energetic and lively version of Taiko drumming called Eisa, a distinctly Okinawan ceremonial dance that has a history that dates back many centuries. It was originally performed to welcome and console the souls of one's ancestors during the summer.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (four per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. If tickets remain at 1 p.m., the box office will reopen one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets.
