Tsam DanceThe 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.
