You are cordially invited to a unique experience of Khmer Arts directly from Cambodia with a cultural performance by the Funan Art School and Indras Artistic Creation.
Funan Art School is located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia with a mission to preserve Cambodian traditional arts while connecting and building opportunities to engage and reconnect with Cambodian heritage. The school offers free programs that specialize in Khmer classical and folk dance, all types of Khmer instruments, singing, shadow puppetry, and other art forms. These dances and art forms are held in high esteem across the country, and for many Cambodians, their performance extends beyond entertainment, it is an art form of spiritual life and meaning. These dances are widely celebrated as iconic Cambodian culture.
Indras Artistic Creation (IAC) is a new organization started in Lowell, MA with a mission to preserve Cambodian traditional arts and languages while also connecting and building opportunities for the Cambodian community to engage and reconnect with their heritage. IAC specializes in different categories of Cambodian traditional art, such as classical dance, music, singing-poetry, language, and religion, with partnering teachers in the U.S. and in Cambodia.
The event will take place on Friday, April 15th, 2022 at 7:00 p.m., and doors open at 6:30 p.m. at Richard And Nancy Donahue Family Academic Arts Center (MCC Academic Arts Center) 240 Central Street, Lowell, MA 01852.
Advance tickets are $10 and General Admission is $15. Donations and proceeds will benefit the Funan Art School.
