Khan Boline and Chum Van Belle perform the tango as part of Robert Lawrence's international Tango Intervention series in Psar Cha Park, next to Norodom Boulevard. Pedestrians gathered and motorists stopped to witness the team of 20 dancers who performed to raise awareness of water mismanagement in Phnom Penh. "We chose this location as it was formerly a canal that was filled in by the French, a move that is still causing flooding problems," said Lawrence, who has so far organised nine such events worldwide, most recently in New York and Vienna. "This is the most insane, chaotic and adventurous intervention we've done," he said of the Phnom Penh event.
