Look at Us is a beautiful initiative of young Cambodian dancers and musicians, who call themselves New Cambodian Artists – NCA. As a consequence of the devastating Pol Pot regime art is focussed on re-creating traditional dance, music and painting.

New Cambodian Artists want to do breathe new life into Cambodian dance and theatre; these artists want to create there own language. They want to discover new ways of performing and asked Dutch theatre director Bob Ruijzendaal to help them with this. The cooperation resulted in a series of workshops and a presentation titled Look At Us (go to ‘photos’ to get a glimpse of NCA).

The logical next step is to work on a genuine performance. In Februari 2009, Bob will return to Cambodia to start rehearsing, on April 1, 2009 New Cambodian Artists want to take the stage with Look at Us 2. But to accomplish this, the artists need your financial support.
