CONTEMPORARY KHMER DANCE
The workshop teaches basic elements and forms of traditional Khmer dance and embeds them in a contemporary dance context. Khmer dance has served as a prayer to the gods and ancestors and as a ritual to ensure the prosperity of the country since the 9th century. There are few societies where dance is so highly respected as a rite of self-preservation. Thanks to the reliefs on the walls of Angkor Wat and the bearers of the dance tradition who have passed on their knowledge for centuries, we can touch the past and bring the forms used more than a thousand years ago back to life in the field of contemporary dance.
