Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (TIPA)

In June 2014, I was lucky enough to spend a day photographing behind the scenes in the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (T.I.P.A), in Dharamshala, Northern India, while the students rehearsed and performed traditional Tibetan music and dance.

The school, which is keeping traditional Tibetan performing arts alive, is set in the breathtaking foothills of the Himalayan mountains. The students live and study in the school.

It was an incredible experience where I was able to witness an ancient art form first hand.
