Thanks for posting that article. I am married to a Cambodian that wanted to learn to dance. But instead spent her childhood in camps to escape Pol Pot and once in the US had to work long hours to feed the family so she never learned the dance.

Sounds like someone is trying to carry on the Cambodian traditions.

Thanks for this contribution, Walter. It is good to know that the Khmer Rouge's plan to return to year zero has not eradicated this traditional dance form.

Ironically the style, in which women play both male and female roles, is inherently peaceful. Its principal motifs are ceremonious processions; tiny steps that move a dancer equally forward and back, negating time's progress through space...
