As well as Joel Montague's lecture at Meta House on Friday evening (7pm), on the paintings of Jean Despujols, there's a new contemporary dance workshop an hour earlier on the same night, at Lyla Lagoon Sports Center. Involving Belle and three other Cambodian dancers together with three artists from the USA, it's the result of a month-long collaboration and artistic exchange. Tickets are available, in limited numbers, from Amrita on Sothearos Boulevard. Lyla Lagoon is on St 508. The following evening, Saturday 26 Nov, again at 6pm at the same venue, disabled arts foundation Epic Arts join up with UK dance company StopGap to present an integrated collaboration called Admission. Free entry but limited tickets from Amrita. I can't make the Saturday show as I'll be at Sombo's wedding party.
Prior to the above, Monument Books will host a book signing this Thursday (24 Nov) at 6pm by author Gina Wijers
for her book Swimming in Uncharted Waters, which documents her thoughts from her two years in Cambodia from 2006 when she worked as a volunteer. The book has just been published in English.
