Demonstration/Workshop: Music and Dance from Myanmar

(Shwe Man Thabin/Rachel Cooper)

A highly stylized form, Zat Pwe typically takes the form of an all-night cabaret, and is a highly popular part of village pagoda celebrations, featuring dancers, comedians, clowns, acrobats, and puppeteers, all accompanied by a live percussion and gong ensemble known as the Hsaing Wang. Explore these traditions in a music and dance in a demonstration and workshop led by the Shwe Man Thabin troupe.
