META HOUSE (M.E.T.A. / Media Education and Training Academy) invites Cambodian artists and film makers for a very interesting video art workshop in middle of May 2009 – combining video production with theatre design.

The well-known artist Huub Laurens from the Netherlands is specialized in film and video for theatre and dance performances. In Cambodia he works with director Bob Ruijzendaal.

Currently Bob prepares a new play at Sovanna Phum Theatre Phnom Penh, which will be performed from 29th – 31st of May. Huub Laurens will be responsible for video and lighting design.

The name of the play is LOOK AT US NOW. The subject of the piece will be the status of Khmer artists in present Cambodia. Ruijzendaal and Laurens work with a group called New Cambodian Artists (NCA), consisting of six dancers and two musicians.

For the workshop Huub Laurens wishes to work with six Cambodian artists/filmmaker. The artists will learn how to design and realize video, theatre sets and lighting. The workshop results will lead to the actual stage design @ Sovanna Phum Theatre.

The workshop will treat stage design as an art form in itself. Many famous artists somewhere in their career, designed stage sets. It is the form of art in which you work in more dimensions than you are used to in painting, sculpture or photography.

With Huub, who also is an accomplished painter, you will explore the use of film, pictures, paintings and colours in combination with new style performances. You will make your own film, pictures or animations and steadily work towards the performances.

Attendance of the workshop is free of charge. The workshop will be held on the weekends and in the evenings. Workshop participants and teachers will agree on suitable times. A certificate is issued to workshop participants, who will also get a DVD with their works.

INFORMATION IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN KHMER LANGUAGE

FIRST MEETING IS ON APRIL 26th, 4PM @ META HOUSE.
