You'll already be aware that the band Dengue Fever
will play an open-air, free live concert in front of Wat Botum on Thursday 13 May to mark the 60th Anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United States and Cambodia. Now it's been announced that the band will also play two days earlier on Tuesday 11 May at the Parkway Center on Mao Tse Toung with tickets at $10 and available from Rubies Bar, Garage Bar, Java Cafe and the Cambodian Living Arts office, for whom the concert is a benefit event. Dengue Fever will be in Cambodia as part of a world tour and the US Embassy in Phnom Penh have booked their services. A screening of the film about the band, Sleepwalking Through The Mekong, will be shown at Meta House on 10 May.
This Tuesday (4 May, 7pm) Meta House will host the first screening of Ream Eyso and Moni Mekhala
, which was filmed at the Chenla Theatre during the French Cultural Center's Lakhon Festival in September 2009. The 45 minute film will introduce you to the ancient story of a greedy giant and the goddess of the seas, told through stunning classical dance by the Khmer Arts Ensemble.
An update on the health of artist Vann Nath
is good news in that the problem has been diagnosed as a duodenum ulcer, the bleeding has stopped and he's getting some strength back. Certainly he's not out of the woods yet but things are looking brighter.
