Arts Brookfield presents Transcendent Arts of Tibet and India
Apr 4, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Immerse yourself in the glorious traditions of Tibet and India from April 4-15 in the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place.
From April 4 – April 8, the monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery, well-known for their recent appearances on the Netflix hit House of Cards, will be staging two exquisite rituals: the art of mandala sand painting and multiphonic chanting. The closing ceremony for the sand mandala includes a procession to the Hudson River on Saturday, April 9, 2016.
From April 11 – April 15, Transcendent Arts of Tibet and India brings the ancient Bharatanatyam dance tradition of South India to the Winter Garden alongside daily performances of North and South Indian classical vocal and instrumental art forms. Friday night’s closing event will be a superb dance performance with live musicians on the center staircase, in the round.
