A Day of Rare Buddhist Dances
ENGLAND
LONDON  •  Victoria and Albert Museum  •  Ongoing
 
Dance is an aspect of Buddhism that is not widely known in the West. As Buddhism spread from India, its views and practices encompassed the cultural heritages of its host countries, including their traditions of dance and movement. It is rare to see authentic sacred Buddhist dances that are not in situ. The Many Faces of Buddhism, London's city-wide celebration of Buddhist ideas and values through the arts, brings together 4 different authentic Buddhist dance traditions to perform in London. Theatre Noh, the Drikung Kagyu Nuns of Samtenling Monastery, the Dehimaduwa Bandara Clan Family of Kandy and Prajwal Ratna Vajracharya will perform over a single day at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Short pre-show talks and post-show discussions will be held in with each performance.
