Cambodian Stories opens on a stage thickly covered with sand and strung with large canvases. It is on this barren and empty geography that the young Cambodian artists together with Eiko & Koma begin to move and create a forest of beautiful lithe bodies and arresting mural-like paintings that serve as a backdrop and catalyst for interaction.
Cambodian Stories is the result of a cultural exchange that began in June 2003 when Reyum co-founders Daravuth Ly and Ingrid Muan invited Eiko & Koma to Cambodia upon seeing the duo in an outdoor performance in New York.
