"Buddha-Triumph and Tragedy in the Life of the Great Sage"

buddha

Penn State Berks will present Buddha-Triumph and Tragedy in the Life of the Great Sage, performed by writer/performer Evan Brennar, on Wednesday, September 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium.

The man we know as the Buddha lived in Northern India around 500 BC and introduced the teaching known today as Buddhism. Approximately 300 years after his death, an extensive oral history of the movement was chronicled and carried throughout Asia, and this canon became the taproot of the entire Buddhist tradition. Framed in a most unusual and personal context, Buddha-Triumph and Tragedy in the Life of the Great Sage brings to the stage these authentic texts to enact the extraordinary life of the man, from start to finish.

After premiering in Boston to sold-out houses and rave reviews, Brennar will be presenting the show at Penn State Berks in its 'unplugged' form (sans set and lighting).
