Dance and stuff

On the dance and music front, there was a promotion at the new radio station NRG on Friday that involved the Klapyahandz team and a multitude of others including a contemporary piece from Belle I'm told. I didn't go as it was a Tiger beer promotion (I detest beer) and hip hop isn't my thing, so no take on Belle's most recent offering. There was also a do at the cafe at the French Cultural Center on the same night. I didn't make that either. Mainly because it was the French or was it the 'bring your Hawaiian shirt'. Not sure. Much more interesting is the latest in the Khmeropedies series of dances from choreographer Emmanuele Phuon. Following the rip roaring success of the I and II series of performances that have been performed far and wide in the United States and elsewhere, Khmeropedies III is getting its first airing this coming Friday (26 August) at The Sport Club on St 508 in Phnom Penh, 6.30pm start and its free. This time around Belle isn't taking part - she starred in I and II - instead it's an all-male cast with 7 dancers playing monkey roles. Sounds intriguing.

There was an event on Saturday night at FCC in their auditorium. Contemporary dance with a mixed cast of CLA students. Was mostly their first try at this stuff and they all had a great time.

Well the advertising for the FCC event was crap as I never heard about it and I keep my ear to the ground. A pity as I would've been there and given the event more exposure. More work needed on the PR front methinks.

There was a full house will all the usual suspects... So the PR front seemed to be working fine...

Well done on the full house, obviously I've been left off someone's mailing list. Ho hum, less PR through my blog on this occasion.

I hear that there will be a contemporary show at Lyla Lagoon Sports Club on Friday 2 September as well. This time Belle and her colleagues will be showcasing a new dance, aided by a foreign choreographer. More details when I get them.

Oh... I imagine all the PR from your blog would be very important and FCC must be very sad to have missed out. :)
