Sacred Music Sacred Dance for World Healing

Sacred Dance Tibet

Following the last two years’ sold-out programs at Asia Society, the famed multiphonic singers of Tibet’s Drepung Loseling Monastery return to perform Sacred Music Sacred Dance for World Healing on Saturday, August 18. Their sellout performances in Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center received national acclaim, and were praised as “remarkable” by The New York Times and “a universal expression of the human subconscious” by The Washington Post

Robed in magnificent costumes and playing traditional Tibetan instruments, the Drepung Loseling monks will present ancient temple music and dance. The Loseling monks are particularly renowned for their multiphonic chanting known as zokkay (complete chord). Each of the main chantmasters simultaneously intones three notes, thus each individually creating a complete chord. They also utilize traditional instruments, such as 10-foot-long dung chen horns, drums, bells, cymbals, and gyaling trumpets. Rich brocade costumes and masked dances, such as the Dance of the Sacred Snow Lion, add to the splendor.

About the Performances

For the first time at Asia Society, the monks will perform an afternoon matinee as well as an evening full-length program.

Afternoon Matinee (2-2:45 p.m.)

This shorter performance, appropriate for families, will feature a selection of the full-length program's music and dance.

Evening Program (7-8:30 p.m.)

This full-length performance has sold out the past two years.

This Week…



Upstairs, Downstairs

Characters and situations shift intersect with another within different floors of the same building.

Cast: Steph Suarez, Jessica Thompson Falla, Patrick Cooney, Keith Huang, Tamara Warton, Nicole Nodarse



Grief Bacon

Depression, anxiety, thoughts of suicide... Hilarious, right?? Grief Bacon thinks so! In this show, a special guest will share their personal mental (un)health journey and Calan and Angela will find silver linings in the struggles that so many of us - especially those of us who feel the need to get in front of groups of strangers in the hopes of making them laugh - face. It's going to get ugly, raw, and real silly, y'all. Cast: Angela Lee, Calan Lambert



Wonder Woman Underoos

Bullets bouncing off their bracelets! Golden lassos flying high! Superhuman strength within them! These amazing Amazons battle evil in the improv world of today! These three ladies explore the truth of relationships – from the emotional to the absurd through friendship and a deeper understanding that only comes from life experience. They are over 40 – and fierce. Cast: Jessica Brown, Tandiwe Kone, Teresa Rocknic

Mystic
Lyon Presents Reading n Writing Mini-Residency

with
Vicki Fowler and Trevor Martin

Event
Dates: July 13-15

MYSTIC
LYON
presents
Reading n Writing Mini on Saturday with Vicki Fowler and Trevor
Martin, July 13-15 from 9am to 4:30pm each day at Mystic Lyon, 5017
Lyons Avenue, Houston, Texas 77020.
This
mini-residency provides an opportunity

to
push collisions of writing and performance through our bodies
querying performed potentials in a writing practice and allowing
ourselves to be de-centered in our making. All of this in hopes of
being centralized in our words and practice.


Art
host, Vicki Fowler asks:
How
might the body serve as a tool for text? How might a measured
movement inform our language? Can corporeal listening both slow and
speed our investigations as writers? How may our words translate into
image and bodily form? 


Participants
are invited to bring their existing, in-progress writings to
collectively digest and further develop through interdisciplinary
modes of: charting, mapping, motion, and food.


One
pot communal lunches provided and made with love by host, Vicki
Fowler. Vegan / gluten free options available upon request.


Cost:
$120  


THE
INSTRUCTOR:

Chicago-based
performance artist and faculty member of The School of the Art
