I've been watching a lot of Kodo
, the taiko band, lately, and wondering what other sorts of performance are based on impressive human effort.

With taiko, for example, the pleasure, at least for me, has as much do to with watching an impressive feat of human strength, endurance, and focus, as with the drumming. What else is like this?
The circus obviously comes to mind. Certain professional sports? Certain musical pieces?
I'd also be curious to see the best examples (a la Kodo for taiko) of whatever subject you bring up.
