Lowell’s Angkor Dance Troupe will celebrate its 25th anniversary next Saturday night with the world premiere performance of Apsara Dancing Stones at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium. (October 27, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.). Here is some information about the Troupe and the event:
Angkor Dance Troupe is celebrating 25 years in 2012 and we’re doing it in grand fashion; by putting on our biggest show yet! Apsara Dancing Stones will premiere at the historic Lowell Memorial Auditorium on October 27, 2012.
Apsara Dancing Stones is a never before seen world premiere production created by Angkor Dance Troupe’s artistic director, Master Phousita Huy, an internationally recognized performer and instructor of Cambodian classical dance.
Through the eyes of the Khmer deity Apsara, the story unfolds with the birth of Cambodia’s golden era of Gods and Goddesses and then moves into the dark age of war and destruction. The story concludes with the rebirth of Khmer culture and the reaffirmation of the Apsara’s power as a symbol of peace, reverence and unity.
The Angkor Dance Troupe is a terrific organization that deserves the support of the entire community. Please consider attending the performance – tickets may be purchased at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium website. If you are unable to attend but want to support the performance financially, go to the Apsara Dancing Stones page on Kickstarter and make a contribution.
