ROYAL BALLET OF CAMBODIA
Tue, Oct 28 2014, 7:00
- 8:00 PM
Lensic Presents The Roybal Ballet of Cambodia.
The Royal Ballet is a Cambodian tradition dating back more than 1,000 years. Closely linked to the royal court, it has suffered all the repercussions of the nation's history and, at various times, has almost been lost. In spite of such adversity, it has always been revived.
Cambodian classical dance is a unique art form. It is less esoteric in character than Indian classical dance, quieter and more restrained than the dances of Java, and is more grounded than the impression of weightlessness seen in Western ballet. In Cambodian tradition, the dancer performs a succession of choreographed postures that smoothly flow from one to the next without any abrupt movement. Nevertheless, the dance is a passionate art form in which controlled movement is used to communicate drama and intensity. Each of the slow, carefully composed gestures are precisely marked by orchestral accompaniment
Male and female dancers studying at the Royal University of Fine Arts in Cambodia today receive a complete education and ballet masters have been granted a status that ensures their security. The troupe now performs all its traditional functions. It participates in ancestral rituals and ceremonies in honor of the protective divinities, welcomes important guests, and performs in the main celebrations of the ancient calendar. Today, the Roybal Ballet is known as the country's national dance troupe.
