Phon Sopheap, Chey Chankethya and Yim Savann leap into rehearsals for the Dansez! Roam! programme. Opening 7pm Friday at Chenla Theatre, choreographer Chey Chankethya’s Teav uses contemporary dance to explore the new and complex world of Cambodia’s women and its difficult choices. She bares its inner workings in her new piece, adapting an ancient story of a woman torn between family, king, religion and love, and using “Khmer softness with fast and modern energy”. Dancers Phon Sopheap and Khon Chansina conclude the evening with their piece Body and Spirit. To ensure a seat, pick up a free ticket from Amrita Arts or the French Cultural Centre.
