Kumnooh: Cambodia arts for the week commencing 24 September 2013

Greetings:

A quietish week ahead as we prepare for Pchum Ben. Kumnooh will most likely have nothing to report next week, so see you on the other side.

On Wednesday 25 the WASH poetry/musica/electronica collaboration returns to Equinox Bar (St 278 just off St 51) to present The Next Horizon, from 8 pm. There will be special cabaret-style seating for the event. And if you can’t make it, it will be live streamed on Video Free Equinox.

Also on Wednesday, Meta House hosts the opening of Bruno Levy’s Cambodian manadalas exhibition, Angkor Rebuilt, from 6 pm; followed by a screening of three short docs about the White Building: The Building by Alnoor Dewshi, Dancing in the Building by Neang Kavich, and Red Earth Village by Erik Lofting, from 8 pm.

This weekend at Java Café and Gallery, the Siew Phew Yeung/Our Books group is coordinating the Cambodian participation in the worldwide 24 hour Comic Day. This is an international event that challenges comic artists to produce a finished 24 page comic in 24 hours – the rest of the world will be doing it next weekend, but thanks to Pchum Ben the Phnom Penh version is brought forward one week. The Cambodian variation on the 24 hour theme, to account for the different lifestyle, is to produce one page in one hour; the event goes on from 8 am on Saturday to 8 am Sunday. A preparatory opening event and exhibition, Strip all Night will take place on Friday evening from 6 – 8 pm.
