Tibetan Monks Sacred Dance (Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018)

Tibetan Monks Sacred Dance (Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018)

Their way of life is unique and steeped in Buddhist ideas and culture and their dances are frightening and uplifting but not at the same time

From the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in South India come monks who put on a superlative and highly engaging series of short dances…

Jane Rasch, tour manager, talks to us about what it means for the eight monks to come to the UK and go to Europe to perform. We also hear from monk Lakpa about what the dances are about. Not just colourful and engaging, they have real meaning in a world continually threatened by division and hatred…
