Do you have any particular favourite percussion features during the show?
"I think the whole thing, really, because there’s percussion and lots of solos all over the place. Just last night I was thinking that you don’t get a rest ever - you go from one song, finish, straight into the next, pick up this instrument and you’re just constantly playing all the time! By the end you’re completely drenched and it certainly keeps you fit, you know?
"There’s a flamenco number when I go down and play cajon, one at the end where I play the dhol and one where I play what they call the ‘Glass Orchestra’ which are water-filled ‘tuned’ science beakers.
"Having all the acrobats around you 30-100ft in the air and seeing the discipline in what they do means that you can really learn from that. They have no fear whatsoever and have lost all concept of fear whilst doing all these amazing things with their bodies."
