A vibrant show, warmly acclaimed at the time of its creation in 2011, Danse Lhasa Danse echoes the unclassifiable repertoire of Lhasa de Sela, the woman who encouraged us to celebrate life in all serenity.The show offers a chance to rediscover the diversity and richness of Lhasa de Sela's repertoire through a program performed by artists who reflect her strong themes. Song and dance intertwine in an intimate evening.
Presenting an evocative blend of song and dance, the show is inspired by the magic of this dual language. Danse Lhasa Danse invites us to a joyous and moving reunion at the crossroads of genres, present and past.
