Children of Bassac. Training in 2009. Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Children of Bassac. We are in 2009, more than one year after the children came back from the WOMAD festival in England and the festival in Edinburgh. The children are still training in the same hot room. But the walls have been painted and pictures hung up. Sophea (center of the picture) came back from London the trip abroad with proud and a new will to carry on learning dance : « When we were promoting our show between performances, people asked us where Cambodia was situated. I'm very proud of what we have shown of our country. I want to learn dance and hand over my knowledge to the next generation ». Phnom penh, Cambodia-2009
