Join us for a very special event on contemporary dance in Cambodia where we bring together the Being Human Festival and the Cambodian Living Arts (CLA) cultural season. Discover how contemporary Cambodian dance is being used by a young generation of artists to showcase new identities, expressions and experiences beyond the narrative of the Killing Fields. The event will include a pre-recorded dance performance screened as part of CLA's Cultural Season. DARK by Choung Veasna and THE PILLAR by Sok Nalys and a Q&A with the artists involved.
