About The Rebirth of Apsara

Presented by New Performance Traditions/Paul Dresher Ensemble.

The Rebirth of Apsara is a full-length dance/theatre work that investigates the relationship between art and war exploring how Cambodian arts and in particular Apsaras, fabled female celestial beings, have embodied the essence of Cambodian culture from ancient mythology to its post genocide resurrection.

Mirroring Charya Burt's own life’s journey as an artist to explore the impact Apsara has had on both Khmer civilization and Cambodian artists of today, Burt sets her re-imagined classical dance gestures to a musical score by renowned Cambodian-American composer Chinary Ung. Preeminent dancers from Cambodia’s Ministry of Culture who share Charya Burt’s passion for resurrecting the dance join Burt and her international company of dancers to explore the impact artistic lineage has had on the rebirth of Cambodian classical dance.

Created and choreographed by Charya Burt with a commissioned score by Chinary Ung and text by Kalean Ung, with additional music and music direction by Paul Dresher. Music performed by Joel Davel, Paul Dresher, Susan Ung and Vân-Ánh Võ.
