Web Site at www.WorldDharma.com
Alan Clements, former Buddhist monk, author, activist, and spoken word entertainer - described in the press as 'a blend of Lenny Bruce, Noam Chomsky, Terrence McKenna and Bill Maher'
will perform his popular one-man show in Vienna at the THEATER DES AUGENBLICKS for two shows only on FRIDAY MAY 20 ans SATURDAY MAY 21, 2005, 8pm.
The shows are a benefit for the imprisoned Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, known as 'Burma's Gandhi.'
A former director of Amnesty International called Alan Clements 'one of the most important and compelling voices of our times.' Clements was the first American to become a Buddhist monk in Burma, where he lived for the better part of a decade, before disrobing and becoming a
spiritual anarchist. Now, it's as a performer of improvised spoken word in a radical new genre of spiritual entertainment that he has been called a Lenny Bruce for the post-New Age.
ALAN CLEMENTS is the author of Burma: The Next Killing Fields? and The Voice of Hope, the internationally acclaimed book of conversations with Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma's Nobel laureate and leader of her country's nonviolent struggle for freedom. Alan is also co-author of Burma's Revolution of the Spirit, with a foreword by the Dalai Lama. In addition, Clements was the script revisionist and advisor for Beyond Rangoon, a feature film depicting
Burma's struggle for democracy, directed by John Boorman. Alan's most recent book Instinct for Freedom, was nominated as the best spiritual teaching/memoir of 2003. Alan has been interviewed on ABC's Nightline, CBS News, CBC, Talk to America, VOA, BBC, and by
the New York Times, London Times, Time and Newsweek magazines, Yoga Journal, and scores of other media worldwide. He performs his one man theatrical monologue worldwide to illuminate the fundamental importance of understanding human consciousness as the basis for
true social, political and spiritual transformation. His web site is located at: http:/www.WorldDharma.com.
