Showcasing Charya Burt’s inventive choreography, based in Cambodia’s classical dance tradition, this program includes her 2016 San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival premiere, Heavenly Garden; a demonstration of classical Cambodian movements and gestures; Sentimental Dance from the classical repertory; and Intersections Through Time, which explores her personal journey as an immigrant artist. Dedicated to the preservation and advancement of Cambodian dance through formal instruction, workshops, and public performances, Charya Burt Cambodian Dance was established in 1993 after Charya left the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh to immigrate to the San Francisco Bay Area. Today, the company continues its original mission along with developing and presenting new works deeply rooted in tradition that also push artistic boundaries to help the art form evolve and stay relevant.
