Season of Cambodia was a special initiative of Cambodian Living Arts in partnership with Cambodia’s leading arts organizations and New York’s most vibrant cultural and academic institutions. The festival features more than 125 Cambodian performing and visual artists at New York City’s stages, screens, galleries and public spaces, creating a broad and dynamic platform for Cambodia’s cultural treasures to be shared with an international audience.
The festival celebrates Cambodia’s artistic revival just one generation removed from the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979), a dark period in Cambodia’s history during which nearly 90% of the artists and intellectuals were tragically eliminated in an effort to devastate a flourishing artistic community. Season of Cambodia, then, will serve as an international platform that not only highlights the extraordinary resilience of the Cambodian nation and its artists, and also sets the stage for other post-conflict nations seeking renewal through artistic expression.
Cambodian Living Arts, a non-profit organization based in Phnom Penh and the U.S. founded in 1998 by artist and Khmer Rouge survivor Arn Chorn-Pond, played a role in preserving the traditional Cambodian art forms through its masters-students programs. Today, CLA fosters collaborations with Cambodian artists and organizations, serving as a catalyst for the development and resiliency of Cambodian arts and culture.

  • THE ROYAL BALLET HRH Princess Norodom Buppha Devi Her Royal Highness Princess Norodom Buppha Devi was born on January 8, 1943 as daughter to His Royal Majesty King Norodom Sihanouk, King of Cambodia, and her mother Néak Phat Kanhol. HRH Princess Buppha Devi began her studies at the age of six at the Sothearos Primary School and at the same time, began her classical dance training at the school of dance of the Royal Palace. The Princess gave her first professional performance at the age of eight in honor of the King of Laos. She immediately became recognized as a distinguished artist and performed until 1970 at which point she accompanied her father the King to China. As a dancer, the Princess performed for distinguished dignitaries from France, China, the United States, Indonesia, Korea, Burma, the Soviet Union and many others. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Princess trained young dancers on the Cambodian / Thai border. Following the Paris Conference of 1991, she returned to Cambodia with her father King Sihanouk. Immediately upon her return, the Princess continued to work in the cultural domain. Following the elections of 1993, the King and the Royal Government of Cambodia bestowed on the Princess the role of Advisor in charge of the fine arts, in particular classical court dance. From 1999-2004, HRH Princess Bopha Devi served as Cambodia’s Minister of Culture and Fine Arts. HRH Norodom Buppha Devi continues to choreograph, adding works to the classical repertory of the Royal Ballet. She has been instrumental in nurturing a new generation of gifted artists in close collaboration with her colleagues who survived the tumultuous period of the Khmer Rouge. The Royal Ballet that tours internationally today does so under her vigilant leadership and guidance.

  • April 13 – Opening Ceremonies Rubin Museum of Art DANCE
  • Excerpts from “Dancing in Cambodia" — Amitav Ghosh On May 10 1906, at two in the afternoon, a French liner called the Amiral-Kersaint set sail from Saigon carrying a troupe of nearly a hundred classical dancers and musicians from the royal palace at Phnom Penh. The ship was bound for Marseille, where the dancers were to perform at a great colonial exhibition. It would be the first time Cambodian classical dance was performed in Europe. The dancers were on the ship's first class deck; they seemed to be everywhere, running about, hopping, skipping, playing excitedly, feet skimming across the polished wood. The whole deck was a blur of legs, girls' legs, women's legs, `fine, elegant legs', for all the dancers were dressed in colourful sampots which ended shortly below the knee. The onlookers were taken by surprise. They had expected perhaps a troop of heavily-veiled, voluptuous Salomés; they were not quite prepared for the lithe, athletic women they encountered on the Amiral-Kersaint: nor indeed, was the rest of Europe. An observer wrote later: "...with their hard and close-cropped hair, their figures like those of striplings, their thin, muscular legs like those of young boys, their arms and hands like those of little girls, they seem to belong to no definite sex. They have something of the child about them, something of the young warrior of antiquity and something of the woman." … Those who were there then say there was a moment of epiphany in Phnom Penh in 1981. It occurred at a quiet, relatively obscure event: a festival at which classical Cambodian music and dance were performed for the first time since the Revolution…. "We thought everything was lost, that we would never hear our music again, never see our dance." They could not stop crying; people wept through the entire performance. It was a kind of rebirth: a moment when the grief of survival became indistinguishable from the joy of living.

  • FILM Renowned Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh, who was scheduled to arrive today to participate in events surrounding the film series at Film Society of Lincoln Center this weekend, has been ordered by doctors to remain at his home in Paris to recover from a recent illness. Mr. Panh sends his deepest regrets and will prepare remarks to be read on his behalf at this Friday's opening of the film series, marked by a screening of Kalyanee Mam's Sundance-honored "A River Changes Course," which Mr. Panh was set to introduce. We here at Season of Cambodia wish Rithy a speedy recovery and look forward to viewing his films and those he curated with Robert Koehler of the Film Society of Lincoln Center for Old Ghosts, New Dreams: The Emerging Cambodian Cinema.

  • April 13 – Opening Ceremonies Rubin Museum of Art IN RESIDENCE
  • In Residence A citywide visual arts program centered on two-month residencies in conjunction with exhibitions, installations, screenings, open studios, and conversations at major New York City institutions; including an unprecedented academic symposium about contemporary art practice and history in Cambodia. In Residence invited New York City audiences to engage with new perspectives on Cambodia’s history and contemporaneity through a citywide visual arts program centred on two-month residencies, complimented by a dynamic map of public programs including solo exhibitions, screenings, symposiums, open studios, and conversations with artists and curators critically involved in shaping Cambodia’s unique contemporary art scene. For decades, Cambodia has been subject to international field research – a practice that has largely shaped distanced, third person perspectives around the nation’s occupied and traumatic histories. In the last decade, it is largely Cambodia’s local and diaspora visual artists who, by giving form to their experiences, are responsible for anchoring critical first-person perspectives. To extend these unique views, In Residence engaged 1 curator and 10 visual artists in 2-month residencies. The selected artists work across a range of practices including drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, video, and performance. Born between 1970 and 1987 – either during the U.S. military bombing campaign, the Khmer Rouge era, or Vietnamese occupation – the artists interpret their histories from different angles while many also respond to current urban and cultural change. While the residencies serve as a base from which artists extend their research and practices in NYC, the public programs give an interactive scope to the program. We partner with leading institutions to create diverse platforms that contextualize Cambodia’s artistic production both on its own terms and as a part of a wider global dialogue.
