A new piece…?

Choreographer Emmanuèle Phuon (who created Khmeropédies I, II and III) arrived back in Phnom Penh last week to start working with some of our dancers on a new dance project. In this blog she briefly explains the new project.

That’s right! we are embarking on a new adventure.

Last Tuesday, three of Amrita’s group, Rady, Mo and Tou, started to work on a new piece…

OK, I don’t know yet if it will be a new piece, and the subject, Khmer boxing is rough. Rough on the body, rough to put on stage, rough in my mind… Thank God I have Sopheap to assist me in this, and three very patient, hard working, and willing men.

We brought in Hem Saran as our specialist. Saran is a professional boxer and helps us get the moves right. We are always afraid that he will get carried away and throw one of us a real punch, but so far so good.

We’ll keep you posted!
