Cie du Scopitone

In an explosive, energetic, all-female show, Lay This Drum! challenges the concept of “gender” in contemporary society and dismantles male/female stereotypes by engaging in every playing field.

The show

From body drumming to unconventional instruments like cans of motor oil, nail boards, and buckets of paint, and from stiletto heels to construction boots, every collision, rub, and strike finds its place on the stage.

Lay This Drum! offers a rhythmic exploration of identity in the modern world, with a central question driving the performance: “Can women truly excel in percussion?”

In the press

A “Belgian girl band” that packs a punch.

They are 5, they are Belgian, and they rock! Lay This Drum! is a new 100% female percussion show. A world premiere.

  • Marie Claire Belgium


A show with a bang. […] Five girls making some noise! Five women behind the drums, dismantling stereotypes with humour and boundless energy.
