Tour type: Cultural Tour Duration: 9 Days 8 Nights Departure from: Yangon
Artistic forms to be discovered (subject to changes): From Yangon to the Shan State via Bagan and Mandalay, our route will gradually reveal the aesthetic heritage and the extreme diversity of the Burmese dynasties’ traditions and popular expressions: marionettes on ‘live’ wires, YokThei, dances from the ancient Burmese courts with their princely bearing and acrobatic style, the Ramayanatheatre, warlike dances from the Shan minority. The Nat Kadaw mediums’ enraptured ritual shows us a world where an unbounded trance is increased tenfold by the frenetic HsaingWaing orchestra which makes the heart beat and the senses reel.
Integration of some following activities in each program;
Orchestra (Hsaing Waing) and harp (Saung Gauk) duet
Classical Masked Theater about the Myanmar Ramayana story
