Last night, more than 500 people attended an extraordinary performance of dance and music in UMass Lowell’s Durgin Concert Hall by the Angkor Dance Troupe, Flying Orb Productions, and UMass Lowell’s World Music Ensemble. The one-day festival included sculptor Yary Livan, who displayed ceramics and sculpture in the lobby of Durgin Hall, as well as a poetry reading and a panel discussion about post-traumatic stress in refugee communities.
