Tashi Lhunpo Tibetan Monks performance at Lupton House 7 pm
BATS old friends, the Tibetan monks of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery are returning to Lupton House with a programme of workshops and performance on Saturday 28th September.
The performance starts at 7 pm and booking is essential too because it is nearly sold out.
'The Power of Compassion' is a performance of masked dance and sacred chant from a Tibetan monastery, offering an entertaining and informative introduction to Buddhist monastic ritual.
The dramatic dances, taken from the Gutor Festival before Tibetan Losar (New Year), use colourful costumes and masks, and the instruments include the long horns, drums, cymbals and bells of the Tibetan Tantric orchestra, as well as the atmospheric calm of traditional chanting.
The performance includes introductory explanations of each item in the programme which allows audiences to get more understanding of the presentation and Tibetan monastic culture.
Contact Lupton House to book a place for the performance.
