Master Class: Khmeropedies III Workshop at Mark Morris Dance Group
This workshop will focus on the Cambodian classical male dance, Lakhaon Kaol. The workshop will offer insight into this timeless training handed down to the new generation of dancers by the 10 percent of elder masters who survived the purges of the Khemer Rouge regime. The dancers will demonstrate the difference of how gestures and movements are executed by the female, male, giant, and monkey roles. The workshop is appropriate for both men and women of all levels of dance training. The workshop will be led by Phon Sopheap; senior monkey dancer and teacher from the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh.
