Performing Arts Center of Bhutan

Try to imagine a culture without music, dance, or literature. You can’t. The arts are both substance and spice, the “soil” that keeps a culture together and brings it to life.

The country of Bhutan is under siege. On the battlefield is an ancient wisdom culture colliding with “Do You Want To Be a Millionaire”. The kingdom is completely without a performing arts center. There is no hub from which to coordinate, preserve, encourage, display, empower, educate and inspire…

And what better way to do this than through the arts? Art is both the mirror and the reflection of a culture. It is a powerful force to be reckoned with…

The “Performing Arts Center of Bhutan” to be built in Thimpu, Bhutan's capital, will be a living institution, playing a key role in preserving Bhutan’s culture by offering a contemporary outlet for performances of traditional music, dance, theater, film, educational programs, and other special events.

Just as the vanishing Hawaiian culture successfully created the Polynesian Cultural Center, a performing arts center in Thimpu Bhutan will unquestionablyprovide an inspirational force. This center will help to preserve the precious identity of Bhutan before it is lost to the world forever.
