The work of the Japanese-born dance duo Eiko and Koma has been described as "enacting mysterious rituals, set in desolate dreamscapes."

The couple, who met while studying the ancient Japanese movement art called butoh, seem to create works about time, or silence, or nature, or the struggle to survive. Often their dances are so gradual that the performers seem to be not moving at all. Many works are performed in the nude.

Grand Themes, Conveyed in Movement and in Paint, in 'Cambodian Stories'
by JENNIFER DUNNING for the New York Times

By the end of the 80-minute piece a young man, played by the 17-year-old Setpheap (Peace) Sorn, has fallen in love with 16-year-old Chakreya So, who dies and is commemorated in a huge backdrop portrait filled with wild beauty, painted on the stage by the men.

...

"Cambodian Stories" is also about decay, as pieces by Eiko and Koma often are.

Living Art
Young Cambodian artists paint a dance
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

They pay no attention when 16-year-old Chakreya So, the only female in the group, enters walking slowly sideways, her arms stretched wide, wrists flexed, her feet dragging little mounds of sand. She introduces herself, adding that when she dances she imagines herself walking in water.
