See the show The Willamette Weekly called unlike anything ¬Å“we’ve seen in Portland in ages.”
Over Twenty Percussion Instruments in this original retelling of Carrie-Ann Tkaczyk's novel, Only Ghosts. This percussive performance will shake the walls of your heart.
An international cast performs over twenty percussion instruments including Nepal's traditional drum, the madal. All original story and music.
In the sultry jungles of Nepal, modern and ancient desires beat. When a stranger comes to a Nepali village, the mystic and the modern clash. Voices, percussion music, and story meld into the pulse of a mysterious pool, Bhoot Pool: the place the villagers fear; the place the forbidden are free to love. Of course, all freedom has its cost.
This show features four well-known musicians, Bruce Bartlett, Charlie Kersch, Ragon Linde, and Prasanna Dhoj Pradhan. As well as performers, poets and singers A. Molotkov and Carrie-Ann Tkaczyk. Their bios can be found on the performance website.
Masks for the production were made by students at the Nepali school, Educational Environment Boarding School
