Profound and moving, ‘Bardo Songs – Liberation through the senses’ features real-time painting by acclaimed Tibetan artist, Karma Phuntsok.  Together with extracts from the Tibetan Book of the Dead and a collaborative score coordinated by Festival Director Tenzin Choegyal and featuring some of Brisbane’s finest musicians – Marcello Milani, Shen Flindell, Peter Hunt, and Yeshe Reiner.  Lucid poetry combined with sublime music and songs – a mesmerising unfolding visual art experience provides a window into the moments just before and just after death and how we prepare for the mind’s release from the body and the experiences of ‘the between’. The ‘Bardo Thotrol’ (The Great Liberation through Hearing in the Between) was originally composed by Guru Padmasambhava in the 14th century. Although this book is ostensibly written for the dead, it is in fact about life.
