2nd instalment

The character of Moni Mekhala and her magic jeweled ball
Here is the 2nd instalment of photos from the Khmer Arts Ensemble's rehearsal staged at Takhmau on Saturday morning, in prep for their Friday night performance at Chenla Theatre this week (which is free and starts at 7pm). Throughout the hour long rehearsal, the founder of the company Sophiline Cheam Shapiro was providing tips and gestures for the dancers to follow accompanied by her dance mistress Penh Yom, a former dancer and teacher herself.
