CSEAS Students Attended a Performance by Cambodia Living Arts in Phnom Penh
On November 21st, 2019 Cambodia Living Arts generously provided CSEAS students with tickets to see their production of “Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia”. The students described the event as very moving, heartbreaking yet beautiful, and an insightful look into Cambodia’s cultural traditions surrounding burial. The performance marked the 4oth anniversary of the fall of the Khmer Rouge regime and commemorated the victims. The composition fused music (composed by Him Sophy), voice, movement, and visuals (arranged by filmmaker Rithy Panh) encapsulating nearly 20 years of work in the field of arts for transformation and healing.
