On Saturday, June 8, at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco, Charya Burt Cambodian Dance’Blossoming Antiquities will open the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival, produced by World Arts West. The work responds to sculptor Auguste Rodin’s sketches of Cambodian dancers, made in 1906, when the centuries-old Cambodian Royal Ballet performed in Paris. Choreographer Burt evokes these historical sketches in a performance that evolves from a visually stunning traditional Khmer dance into an exciting new work. Tickets are $38 and may be purchased here.
