Our Work

Olden New Golden Blue

In a new ceremony, five young Cambodians of a pivotal generation embody and synthesize contradictory ways of being in a contemporary Cambodian society of opposing currents. Tradition/experimentation, preservation/evolution, nostalgia/future-focus, spirituality/materialism, and public exhibition/private introspection collide and merge briefly in this new work by Peter Chin, created in collaboration with the Cambodian artists.

A new work by Peter Chin; produced by Tribal Crackling Wind in collaboration with Amrita Performing Arts.
