THANGTONG LHUGAR PERFORMING ARTS (TLPA)
SPONSOR A TLPA STUDENT
Thangtong Lhugar Performing Arts (TLPA) was founded by Mr. Phutnsok Tsering in Dharamsala to preserve and promote all aspects of the rich tradition of Tibetan performing arts, especially Tibetan opera. Tibetan performance traditions are on the verge of extinction in Tibet , where authorities are systematically changing songs, dance, music and opera to serve ideological ends. TLPA conducts research in traditional Tibetan performing arts, provides a five-year course to train young talent, and organizes seminars, workshops and performances, within the exile community and around the world, to create awareness about the rich performing arts of Tibet. Your sponsorship will help TLPA to preserve authentic Tibetan music, dance, and opera for future generations. Currently, there are four teachers, seven senior artists and 21 junior artists in need of support in the troupe.
