Two events this coming Friday (18 March) clash and something will have to give. There's the meet the author session with novelist Sue Guiney at Van's restaurant next to the Post Office, which I'm told is now booked solid. Sue's novel called Clash of Innocents is a story set in Cambodia and the session will include readings from the novel as well as involvement from her pet project here, Anjali House. At the same early evening time, Sam Sathya and Yon Chantha will be presenting a new contemporary dance piece called Sospiri at Meta House, which I really want to see. The performance is under the tutelage of Bob Ruijzendaal and fortunately will be performed again the following evening, so that's my decision made for me. Try and get along to Meta House to support Bob and the dancers, especially as Sam Sathya is the best known classical dancer in the country and is always keen to try something new and Chantha is one of the most vibrant of the new breed of contemporary performers.
