The Burmese Ramayana at the Hudson Guild (NYC) March 2008 /DVD
Featuring new choreography by Shwe Man Win Maung, scenes from the epic Ramayana are portrayed in a dance-drama by the master artist and his 14-member troupe, Shwe Man Thabin New York (“The Golden Mandalay Theater”). Although Hindu in origin, the Ramayana is not limited to class, nation, language, region or culture. Because of its universal themes of truth, courage, compassion and love, it is celebrated and performed in countries throughout Asia, including Myanmar (Burma), where the story was adapted from the Indian version in order to reflect these themes in Buddhist tradition. This famous epic about the eternal battle between good and evil is enacted in traditional Burmese dance style and authentic costumes with both classical and folk musical accompaniment.
