Soon to be gone but not forgotten, Vuth Chanmoly
Following closely on the heels of Chey Chankethya leaving these shores to study in the United States, another star of the classical and contemporary dance fraternity here in Phnom Penh will also be on her way soon. I couldn't make it but tonight was the leaving party for Vuth Chanmoly
, who is moving to live in France following her marriage last month. Moly as she's known, has been a leading light in the classical field for many years, completing her BA in 2003, specializing in the male and giant roles, travelling the globe and touring with the Royal Cambodian ballet as well as following her mother, Soth Somaly, as a teacher at the Secondary School of Fine Arts. She has also turned her hand to contemporary dance as well and included an appearance in Where Elephants Weep, which received great acclaim when it was performed in the capital. I know Moly will be missed by so many friends, her work colleagues at Bayon TV and fans alike.
