A NOTE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, CHEY CHANKETHYA AT THE LAST PERFORMANCE BY AMRITA PERFORMING ARTS
Chumreap Sor and welcome to our show!
On behalf of my team, I would like to pay my gratitude to all the distinguish guests for coming to our show this evening.
Throughout the years, you have supported us endlessly. Your open heart and genuine support have allowed us to share our experimentation in a very friendly, supportive, but yet quite critical environment.
This country, like everywhere else in the world, needs art to cherish people lives, to evoke conversations, to ignite creativity, to inspire exploration, and to seek for something new, better, and more developed.
Working outside of the usual norm and comfort zone is not an easy job, but we believe that our job is important. Regardless of any obstacles and challenges, we’ve never stopped. We believe in exchanging experience and knowledge that is why for the past 15 years we bring the world to Cambodia and bring Cambodia to the world. We encourage our team to push their boundaries, to ask more questions, to keep seeking for the new and difference. Most importantly, we hope they will never stop learning and remain open to supporting innovation. We also work hard to provide opportunity and platform for our artists to become dance maker, thinker, and better mover. I strongly believe that when one has a chance to be a leader, one will be a great follower.
Through our show/performance, Amrita has provided space for our team as well as our audiences to share, to question, and to be each other’s critic. However, today it is not the end, it is just the beginning of something new and incredible. With their experience and knowledge, we believe our artists are capable enough to use their crafts and artistry to continue and serve their people and society.
Once again, thank you so much for spending your Sunday evening with us. Thanks for your generous support. Thanks for willingness to visit the unknown. Thanks for being unafraid to be the fool. Thanks for creating a space for the brave.
Have a great night! Thank you very much.
