The dancers, from a distance
Enjoyed the Lives of Giants at Chaktomuk Theatre tonight, put on by the Sophiline Arts Ensemble group from Takhmao, which gives an interesting new twist to classical story-telling, trying to make it more relevant and easier-to-grasp and getting the dancers to express themselves more, both in movement and speech. The Angels and their whooping and crying brought a welcome touch of humour to the show, making it less stuffy and more accessible, whilst retaining the classical elements that make it very Cambodian. Its on for another 3 days and well worth getting along to watch it for yourself. An all-female cast accompanied by an orchestra and singers.
