Hi-Hat Xpres is a fast-paced journey through different eras and countries, following the development of the hi-hat instrument. From the alchemists to Led Zeppelin.
The ensemble from Share Music, a percussion ensemble and Danskompaniet Spinn present a unique performance – an encounter between movement and music, fast rhythms and subtle progression. A theatrical experience for the audience, where thirteen dancers and four musicians take the stage with their bodies and instruments.
Hi-Hat Xpres premiered in 2012 and toured throughout Sweden in cooperation with Riksteatern, giving both public and school performances. Hi-Hat Xpres was performed during the Teaterdagarna in Hallunda, at Göteborgs Kulturkalas and during the major festivals City of Culture in Londonderry, Northern Ireland and Audio Arts in Kraków, Poland.
