„Apsara Dancer in Cambodia“

from the gallery of Keith Molloy

A traditional Apsara dancer performing in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

While in Siem Reap viewing the temples I went along to one of the evening cultural shows. I was pleasantly surprised by a very professional production.

At the back of the stage was an impressive caving of Angkor Wat providing the background to this image. The lightening was excellent and so there is no flash used here. The costumes were authentic and looked fabulous. The dancers themselves were very talented and it’s great to see an art form like this being revived as it almost died out under the Khmer Rouge.

I certainly enjoyed it so I hope you enjoy the image.
