Our Work

Revitalizing Monkeys and Giants

Revitalizing Monkeys and Giants was one of Amrita’s first attempts at contemporary dance created in collaboration with Thai choreographer Pichet Klunchun. Six Lakhaon Kaol(classical male masked dance) dancers explore their ancient form without the benefit of their masks and elaborate costumes to create a work that is deeply provocative and intimate. This work premiered in Phnom Penh in March 2005 and later featured at the National Museum of Singapore in 2006, at the Singapore Arts Mart in June 2007, and at the TARI Festival in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia in July 2007.
