On Saturday 2 November we will present an evening of Cambodian contemporary dance. The contemporary dance platform is a new phase for Amrita Performing Arts in nurturing and furthering Cambodian artist’s choreographic development. Following on the momentum of years of artistic collaborations with international choreographers and directors, Cambodian choreographers are tapping into their new found skills as well as their classical training in the creation of new works, as they continue to develop their own Cambodian contemporary dance vocabulary. Through this platform, works created by Cambodian choreographers will be created, developed and showcased as well as highlights from our ongoing international collaborations. For this very first platform, three works will be presented.
Our choreographer Chumvan Sodhachivy (Belle) is recreating Bach Cello Suites with three female dancers, a piece that was originally developed by Amrita’s artists in 2010 in collaboration with Institut Francais du Cambodge. It was later re-choreographed in collaboration with Nam Narim and performed at World Dance Alliance 2012 in Taiwan, Our Roots Right Now in January 2013 in Bangkok, and TARI Festival in July 2013. Belle is re-exploring the dance with three of her fellow dancers.
Nam Narim is reviving her work, Dream, which she created with Taiwanese dancers at the three-week 2013 Young Choreographer Project she participated in Taiwan in July 2013. Last but not least, our dancer Chy Ratana (Leak) is performing Ferocious Compassion choreographed by Peter Chin, artistic director of Toronto based Tribal Crackling Wind.

Please see the map below if you are unsure where the Department of Performing Arts is. If you are travelling along Mao Tse Toung from east (Riverside) to west, you will pass Parkway shopping mall on your right and then further on the Chinese Embassy on your left. Just after the Embassy is a crossroads with traffic lights. Turn right at the lights on to St 173. Turn down the first street on your right (it is more of a small lane). There is a sign for the Department of Performing Arts just above head height. This is a residential street but at the end is the theatre – a big red building with plenty of space around it for parking.
