This is a rare opportunity to meet visiting Beijing Dancing Academy teacher Mr. Li Beida at a debut performance of The Buttery Fragrance and workshop where audiences can hone their skills with dancers from Little Pear Garden Collective. The dance is a display of Tibetan life in the old days when people will use tools to make butter manually.The Buttery Fragrance is a playful and charming piece from the rich and long history of Tibet.
