Sreyneang Khon

Sreyneang Khon is the director of the all-female contemporary dance company New Cambodian Artists (NCA) that is based in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The company deals with social issues, such as gender inequality, conservatism or social isolation and produces community art projects.

She shares the work of NCA in the context of the institutionalized cambodian art system in which classical dance and music are the only accepted performance art forms - a system which is widely supported by international NGOs, independant expats and tourists alike - and raises questions of alternative practices.
