Dates abroad

As you may already be aware, the Cambodian Space Project are currently experiencing the delights of France (are there any? - I would say that I'm a Brit) and have at least half a dozen gigs lined up to wow the Froggies with their 60s Cambodian rock. They include stops at Confolens, La Rochelle, Dinan, Rennes and Paris, of course. They will return to Cambodia at the start of next month, thank goodness. Can't have the French hogging our favourite band for too long.
On 21-22 August, 4 of Cambodia's foremost classical and contemporary dancers - Belle, Sam Sathya, Chey Chankethya, Phon Sopheap - will be strutting their stuff at the Esplanade in Singapore to perform Emmanuele Phuon's Khmeropedies I & II, having performed the same in New York in June. They'll also take the show to Amsterdam in Holland for a one-off performance on 28 August. In between time, Belle also took part in the Guangdong Dance Festival in China at the end of July, performing the solo Khmeropedies I, as well as a part in the Winds of Angkor musical that took place at Chaktomuk last Sunday. More positive, worldwide exposure for Cambodian dance. And a little birdie told me that 4 disabled dancers from Epic Arts in Kampot, who performed at this week's youth festival as well, are heading for the UK as I type to perform in my own backyard of Cheltenham on 28 August. The group will take part in workshops alongside British performers with disabilities and will dance at six venues, finishing at the Epic Arts annual showcase in London on 8 September. See Comments for their full programme.
