“Shambhala” is Director Wanma Jiancuo’s newest production, which depicts the spiritual pursuit of tranquility, balance, and happiness through a combination of traditional Tibetan and modern dance form. This 90 minutes modern dance drama showcases the mysterious ancient Tibetan faith, life and activities in Tibetan Plateau, in contrast with the modern society believing. In the Tibetan culture, Shambhala means Xanadu or Shangri-La, a pure land, blissful heaven and paradise. Its meaning reflects the harmony of the Sun and Moon in each person’s heart. The highest state of being of man comes from finding one’s own Shambhala. “Shambhala” recently was performed at the National Center of Performing Arts in Beijing and received rave reviews from the audience. This is a unique opportunity for Chicagoans to experience this exotic, spiritual and modern dance program.
