Tsam Dance
The Tumen Ekh Ensemble's nightly performances of folk dance and music are especially powerful because the small venue brings you within a few feet of the artists. In this picture, dancers are recreating part of a Tsam dance, an elaborate Buddhist ritual that was historically performed at Mongolia's monasteries, and has been revived in the last two decades. You'll find incredible papier-mache Tsam masks at the Choijin Lama Temple Museum just a few blocks north of Tumen Ekh's theater.
