Description

The 1924 Mallory / Irvine expedition to Everest was largely financed by John Noel’s silent film Epic of Everest. Screenings were preceded by musical and dance performances from six “dancing lamas” (in fact one lama and five monks) who had been smuggled out of Tibet for the purpose, causing a major diplomatic rift between Britain and Tibet and helping opponents of the 13th Dalai Lama’s modernisation plans. Here they are shown on the roof of Independent House in Abbey St in September 1925.
