The Myanmar Times: Dec. 5-11, 2005 – World artists share their vision in Yangon

by Kyaw Kyaw Tun and Khin Nyein Aye Than

Gitameit Music Centre, one of Yangon’s leading music schools, will host an arts and cultural exchange from December 3 to 9. Five foreign artists coming from as far afield as New York will work with local artists for a week. German theatre director Manual Lutgenhorst, Americans, singer Thomas Buckner and bass clarinetist Bohdan Hiulash, Thai dancer Pradit Prasartthong, and Hong Kong composer John Chen will be in Myanmar to share their respective artforms with local people.

Gitameit Music Centre has organized the event with sponsorship from the New York based Asian Cultural Council (ACC). According to Gitameit music teacher Kit Young, the ACC supports cultural exchange in the visual and performing arts between the United States and Asian countries. "Through this, the program aims to establish long-term relationships among artists in the world," she says. "This is also a cross-cultural exchange program. It aims to break down borders and sponsor understanding through art and creativity. It also aims to develop individual artist’s creative potential," she adds.
