Keep a space in your diary for Sunday 3 May. That looks the likely date for a benefit screening at Bophana Center here in Phnom Penh of The Tenth Dancer, and it's featured classical dance teacher Em Theay. This wonderful lady and her daughter suffered a disastrous house fire a few weeks ago and lost everything. It would be a wonderful gesture if we can show our support and gratitude to Em Theay and her family for the unselfish work they have put in over the years to get classical Khmer dance back on its feet. Em Theay is an icon of exceptional dignity, serenity and grace and deserves our support. More on the benefit screening as I get it. Also read here.
