For the past 6 years Dance Made in Cambodia has been providing children in residential care the chance to participate in a wide variety of dynamic dance and theatre training. Our programs focus on developing creative and critical thinking skills, perseverance and personal resilience - tools which will be indispensable as they prepare to reintegrate into Cambodian society.“DMIC has been a fantastic means to reach out to the youths of the under privileged in Phnom Penh who would not be given such an opportunity otherwise.”
This year we will be undertaking another large-scale performance project retelling Shakespeare’s famous Romeo and Juliet in a Cambodian setting. As always we will be tackling some serious issues along the way including deeply entrenched racial prejudices, arranged marriages and personal agency in a developing Asian country. “Humane, insightful, lyrical and uplifting dance. Joyous and unflinching and true.”
Your generous donations will help to stage this work by providing much-needed funds for theatre hire, costumes, transportation and the many myriad of expenses entailed in an 8-month rehearsal and performance process.
As well as this you will be providing support for the future of arts education in Cambodia. Your investment will assist us to provide programs and services that support and inspire young people to recognise their full potential as an important member of today’s society.
