Ga Sho

Ga Sho is an original immersive experience from creators Pete M. Wyer and Melissa Salmons into the life of a teenage Tibetan nun who challenges the Chinese government with an act of peaceful protest that condemns her to years of brutal torture in prison. She survives by holding close to her sung mantras, her memories of family, her devotion to her fellow prisoners... and her belief that her torturers are her greatest teachers in the practice of compassion. 

This piece earned The American Opera Project a New Works Exploration Grant to produce and present this video feature at the 2021 winter meeting of the New Works Forum.
