A Deepest Blue

April 21st, 7:00pm

Please save the date! Join us at Dance Mission Theater in San Francisco on April 21st for a multimedia dance performance by Prumsodun Ok. This event is in collaboration with Center for Empowering Refugees and Immigrants (CERI), ARTogether, and the Hewlett Foundation.

Prumsodun Ok was one of 10 recipients of Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions in 2020. “A Deepest Blue” uses a Cambodian and Japanese myth incorporating humanity and responsibility to our threatened oceans and world. Trained in the Khmer classical dance style wiped out by genocide, Cambodian-American Prumsodun Ok resurrects the ancestral experiences in dance, history, filmmaking, photography, poetry, and sound to create art at it’s finest.  

“The Khmer Rouge destroyed 90% of the Khmer dancers; thankfully my teachers’ teachers Chea Samy, Soth Sam On & Chhung Phon led to the revival of the art form from the ashes of war & genocide; one student, one gesture, one dance at a time; they wrote the love, magic, beauty, history, and philosophy of our lineage into the bodies of a new generation.”  

– Prumsodun Ok, founder of Cambodia’s first all-male and gay-identified dance company, in his Ted Talk “The Magic of Khmer Classical Dance.” 

CERI in collaboration with ARTogether proudly announce Prumsodun Ok’s performance at the Dance Mission Theater 3316 24th Street, San Francisco, April 21st at 7pm and a celebration at CERI on April 23rd 12:00-5pm.
