From the Events Calendar – Sandaya: Burmese Lessons

Sandaya: Burmese Lessons:

Atlas Performing Arts Center
1333 H Street NE

What is it like to live in a society where you are muzzled, where everything you say is overheard and reported on? Told from the perspective of artists, musicians and other performers who are trying to pursue their art, “Sandaya: Burmese Lessons” is a musical theater performance that covers twenty years of Burmese history, including when the military junta clamped down on Burmese demonstrators killing 10,000 people in 1988 and ending with the Saffron revolution of 2007. This is the story of a young American pianist who learns about Burmese society by playing Burmese music.

This performance is produced by Alliance for New Music-Theatre, and it features contemporary performance art and Burmese dance, drumming and puppetry with American as well as Burmese performers, who are coming from Yangon.

“Sandaya” will be playing at the Atlas Performing Arts Center
*Pay as you can on July 10th.*
July 11-14 and 18-21 (Thursday – Sunday evenings at 8pm, Sunday matinees at 3pm). Tickets: $30/$25 seniors/$15 students.
