San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival Opening Night with Charya Burt Cambodian Dance
Charya Burt Cambodian Dance
Saturday, June 8 at 8pm
Legion of Honor Museum
A remarkable conversation about form and grace began in 1906, when the centuries-old Cambodian Royal Ballet performed in Paris and captivated sculptor Auguste Rodin.
Cambodian choreographer Charya Burt evokes Rodin's historical sketches in a performance that evolves from a visually stunning traditional Khmer dance into an exciting new work reflecting the cultural collision of East and West.
This innovative collaboration includes original compositions by cellist Alexis Alrich and live visual art-making by painter Mario Uribe.
This performance will be followed by a special reception.
