Details About the talk

For more than 1,000 years, Khmer dancers in Cambodia have been seen as living bridges between heaven and earth. In this graceful dance-talk hybrid, artist Prumsodun Ok — founder of Cambodia's first all-male and gay-identified dance company — details the rich history of Khmer classical dance and its current revival, playing the ancient and ageless role of artist as messenger.
