Acoustic Power play is the exciting program that brings R@taque's high-energy percussion music
to the worldwide audience. Performances draw on influences from the modern world and take them on
a musical and theatrical journey. The performers use nothing but Acoustic objects which can be found in
the modern world.
Giant chemical barrells, car Hubcaps, PVC pipe, spring water bottles and an assortment of unusual drums are
transformed into an interesting set which rataque hit, scrape and bring to life with nothing but their
physical energy during their seamless performance.

The performance is also not just limited to the set, with several pieces within the program which involve
moving around the performance area freely, incorporating theatre and dance elements. Sections of the work
are also adaptable for use as street theatre.
Incoprporating theatre and dance elements, Acoustic Power Play creates its own dynamic in both indoor and
outdoor venues, and can be performed with or without sound reinforcement.
R@taque is currently performing music from "Acoustic Power Play" in Festivals, corporate and promotional
shows, and any other special event where a high-impact performance feature is desired.
