Tomorrow, December 1st, the New Cambodian Artists will start rehearsing again. On November 11th, Bob arrived in Phnom Penh after visiting the embassy in Bangkok who gracefully supported the last performances of NCA. This time, Bob will stay in Cambodia for six months to develop a new way of working. He will give workshops from one to three or four weeks, to small groups, each time resulting in a presentation at Meta House.
For the first workshop, Pumtheatra Chenda (Mom) and Yon Davy – two beautiful dancers from NCA – have asked visual artist and modern dancer Sorn Setpheap (Peace) to work with them. On December 20th, they will perform at Meta House.
By inviting new artists and doing multiple short workshops, the New Cambodian Artists get the opportunity to experiment and investigate new ways of working with more and more colleagues.
