Tibet in the spotlight

TIBET Week will be held from Wednesday until Sunday to celebrate Tibetan culture.

With the theme "Heaven in Tibet," the festival will include performances of traditional songs and dances, as well as exhibitions of intangible Tibetan culture and street shows, said Tashi Dorje, deputy director of the Department of Culture in the Tibet Autonomous Region.

"The exhibition of intangible cultural heritage will be the highlight of the event," said Norbu Sidar, a painter of Thangka, a Tibetan style of painting that includes silk and embroidery. The paintings depict Buddhist deities and scenes.

Tibetan carvings and medicine will be displayed. Of course, Tibetan food will also be available.

Almost 400 singers and dancers will take part in the performances.

"We have practiced more than 50 days for the performance," said Sonam, a dancer. "Although everyone is tired, we are excited to show the world our dance."
