An evening of exquisite traditional Cambodian and Bharatanatyam dance performed by world famous exponents. The event will showcase two ancient dance traditions that share common historical roots but have evolved to represent their own unique journeys to the present.
Charya Burt: Through my creative endeavors, I have developed classical and folk dances, and I have also created crown-innovative works that push the boundaries of the traditional form, both musically and thematically. It is my great obligation to preserve Cambodian dance. I restage dances from the classical repertory, document old dances and pass on the tradition to the next generation. I also infuse the form with imagination by creating new works. These dances reflect my concerns and passions, and hopefully, those of people everywhere.
