Cambodian Stories Revisited (2007)

Co-produced by Inta, Inc, Danspace, and Asia Society.

Eiko & Koma extend and deepen their collaboration with young Cambodian performers who shared the stage with them in last year's Cambodian Stories (seen at Asia Society in New York). In the St. Mark's graveyard at dusk, they will present an outdoor version of the larger work, now a quartet with dancers Peace (Setheap Sorn, age 18) and Charian (Chakreya So, age 17), who played key roles in the stage version. In this new iteration, Eiko & Koma further explore themes of mentorship and the passage of generations that helped make the previous work so poignant. Paintings created by members of the Reyum Painting Collective will be suspended over the gravesites, revitalizing an ancient iconography in the heart of an urban metropolis.

“Haunting theater and dance filled with suggestions about great human themes.”
