From the Roof of the World

Tibetan Monks From Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, 7:30pm Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Tibet – the Land of Snows: home to Buddhist lamas whose ancient rituals have fascinated people for centuries.

Eight Tibetan monks from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery present From the Roof of the World: chant, mantras, music and dance opening a magical window on to a world of reincarnation and mysticism which has inspired audiences in theatres and festivals since they were first seen in Europe a hundred years ago in 1924.

From the mesmerising chant of Buddhist texts to swirling costumed masked dances accompanied by ancient Tantric musical instruments: horns made from human leg bones, skull-drums, cymbals, bells and the great dungchen (long horns), the monks evoke the atmosphere of sacred Tibet: an experience of an ancient, endangered culture.
