"There is no one like these two dancer-choreographers. Theirs is the intensity of strong, white light." Dance Magazine

Renowned movement duo Eiko and Koma intricately choreograph the actions of 10 young dancers and painters in Cambodian Stories, a multidisciplinary collaboration with artists from Phnom Penh. Set to an original score by acclaimed composer and ethnomusicologist Sam-Ang Sam, the performance begins with the collective creation of a large-scale painting exploring the intersection of body and landscape. Conjuring voices past and present, Cambodian Stories is a cross-cultural, cross-generational dialogue about tradition, innovation and the role of the artist in fostering social change. 

The creation and tour of Cambodian Stories were made possible by support from the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Japan Foundation’s Performing Arts JAPAN program, the Rockefeller Foundation Multi-Arts Production Fund, the Asian Cultural Council with funds from the Rockefeller Foundation, the Living Legacy Creative Residency of the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography at Florida State University, the Mekong Project of Dance Theater Workshop, LINC (Leveraging Investments in Creativity), Altria Group, Inc. and the following individuals: Paul Vidich and Linda Sue Stein, Fred Wistow and Stacy Greene, and Tomohei Sasada.
