Myanmar music and dance: Thabin Zat Pwe Shwe Man
7:00 pm class and 8:00 pm show. Preceding the show is a free class at 7 pm. Shwe Man Thabin, one of Myanmar's most admired performers' troupe, celebrates his New York debut with an 18-person troupe of performers and performers. PERFORMSING ZAT PWE - the Burmesian tradition that unites musical, dance and theatre components into a singular vaudeville extravagance.
Zat Pwe is a strongly stylised shape that is usually played all evening. It' a favourite part of the town' s pagodas festivals with dancing, comedy, clowning and acrobatics, performed by a band of performers and gongs called Hsaing Wang. Percussive, melodically and dizzying quickly, Myanmar's score has its own almost masculine timbre, offering the audience an amusing teasing that contradicts the expectation of balance or constant time.
Accompanying the dance, the musicians are lavishly decorated with flowery headgear, necklaces, flower garland and long rose coloured dresses with shiny sutures.

The members of Shwe Man Thabin are inheritors of an art line that spans the ages and yet is easily modern in its approaches; they are a vivid connection to Myanmar's wealthy past, which also ensures that this inheritance of courtly and folkloric tradition will be an integrated part of Myanmar's destiny.
It is a seldom insight into an exceptional type of artwork that is little known outside their home country. The Asian Cultural Council and the New York State Council on the Artworks, among others, make this programme possible.
