Khmeropédies I (2009)


“Khmeropédies is not only beautiful; not only powerful. It is enlightening.”

Toni Morrison


Khmeropédies I is a solo for an Apsara, a celestial dancer, whose “job” is to transmit the prayers of the common people to the gods. She pushes and twists the classical vocabulary to entertain the gods, but also to express the inner conflicts of the human condition.

Khmeropédies I was created in part in a residency at Baryshnikov Arts Centre, New York.

Khmeropédies I & II premiered at New Haven International Festival of Arts and Ideas in 2011 with subsequent performances at Baryshnikov Art Centre, Esplanade Singapore, Spoleto Charleston, and Podium Mozaiek Amsterdam.
