Timely performance

September 22, 2001


To the editor:

At this complicated time, I write to encourage people to attend the performance of the Cambodian dancers ("Spirit of Cambodia") at 7:30 tonight at the Lied Center. The beautiful and intricate classical dances in the program were recovered from the surviving dancers after the Khmer Rouge, in a type of state terrorism, attempted to wipe out the culture of Cambodia by killing all its artists and intellectuals. The dance company has rediscovered, preserved, and continued this heritage with verve and determination.
