With the cambodian royal dancers


In 1927, thinking that the Royal Ballet is endangered, George Groslier, director of the National Museum decides to preserve the memory of this ballet by a remarkable work of alive documentation. Five women dancers - Nou Nâm, Ith, Anong Nari, Kieuvan and Suon - in the roles of men (Nearong), women (Neang), monkeys (Sva) and demons (Yeak) sometimes in duos, repeat the postures which are taken by the photographer. The result of his work is a fantastic and unique collection of glass plates. Forgotten and subjected to conditions that made preservation difficult, this unique collection (of photos) was recently re-discovered, cataloged, restored, and digitized.
