Last year, an unusual workshop took place at the newly opened Pansodan Scene continuing a `tradition` between the Myanmar and German cultural life. `Eye Contact` is the result of years of rehearsals, travellings and concerts: the idea to bring together drawing and music has grown out today to become a much wider initiative celebrating the 60th birthday of the relations between Myanmar and Germany. This year the special occasion called for a special venue: it first occupied the scene of the National Theatre of Yangon on October 3rd, to then travel to other four towns within Myanmar. The event is the joint work of several musicians and two cartoonists: Saw Taw Dhar and Malte Jehmlich who created a graphic dialogue projected to a screen while a concert assured the musical part of the event. The renowned Myanmar meets Europe formation featuring the Hsaing Waing Ensemble of Hein Tint and the jazz group around Tim Isfort was this time complemented by 15 string musicians from the AOC Orchestra Yangon.
Singer Nan Win made a special guest appearance during the concerts which during its first presentation in the National Theater certainly became one of the most interesting cultural cooperation of the past year.
The event held near Mount Popa, in Kyauk Pa Daung marked the beginning of future initiative releated to Pansodan Galler. Some more information to come soon!
