PAMINA DEVI, a Cambodian classical dance drama choreographed by Sophiline Cheam Shapiro and performed by the renowned Khmer Arts Ensemble, turns one eye toward Mozart’s operatic exploration of enlightened change in the aftermath of the American and French Revolutions and another eye toward the choreographer’s own contrary experience with ‘enlightened’ change and revolution. Recorded live at New York’s Joyce Theater (2007, 90 min.); Sophiline Cheam Shapiro will be present at the screening (Q&A).

Who the hell is Dara? I am the sum of my experiences. I am a troubled but fun kind of human. I am passionate about life with dignity. My thinking and feelings are expressed here in my own personal space. Currenlty I work, play and dream big together with 47 artists and 70 team members in Phare Performing Social Enterprise (PPSE) http://www.pharecircus.org in her mission of supporting Phare Ponleu Selpak school, providing professional opportunities for Cambodian youth and revitalizing arts in Cambodia. I was a student at Phare Ponleu Selpak Association in 2001 in my High School Year in Battambang. I was later an interpreter at Phare and joined the first group of performing artists on awareness theater/circus performance tours to educate rural Cambodian populations on landmines, malaria, dengue fever and other public health and safety issues. I spent 13 years of my professional careers in travel, tourism, hospitality and events management in Cambodia before I embarked on the journey on artists career and social programs sustainability in 2013. I have a keen interest in business and personal development and entrepreneurship. My dream is to develop and enhance a strongly reputable and internationally recognized Cambodian brand which Phare already is.
