Description
Proeung Chhieng speaks about how he became head of the School of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh, and the challenges of preserving classical dance, the make-up of the school and student body. He discusses efforts to bring together Cambodian and refugee artists, and the influence of foreign interest in Khmer arts. He speaks at length about a tour of the United States, including controversies with Khmer communities in the U.S. and the ultimate success of the trip. He discusses the growth of the School of Fine Arts, the urgent need to transmit cultural knowledge to younger generations, and efforts to preserve dance through a mentorship program and the filming of reconstructed ballets. He comments on the current state of culture in Cambodia, the affects of the UNESCO designation of the Royal Ballet as a Masterpiece of Intangible Heritage, and a government program to aid elderly masters. Finally, he discusses the success of performances given in Boston, and the challenges of continuing a tour after four leading dancers defected to the United States.
