Rising Art Group Showcases Innovation

Cambodian Living Arts has introduced remarkable innovations not only to attract visitor, but also to promote Cambodian performing arts.

Branded as 'Dialogue', the initiatives were showcased publicly last Sunday night at Siem Reap � Cambodia's most visited tourism site.

According to Ms. Yon Sokhan, the group's art development programme manager, her teams have been staging regular performances using Khmer ancient musical instruments to go with creative and contemporary dances for tourists.

The performances, she added, have been well liked by both domestic and international visitors.

In addition to innovation and creativity, the group also promotes women's role in leading the performing arts and offers scholarship to dancers as well as interested youths.

It is positive that the rising trends will contribute to further promoting the richness of Cambodian performing arts to the world.
