Just about every country on the planet has its own distinctive style of dance. Charya Burt works in the style of her native country, Cambodia.
Cambodian music and culture are presented at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival this year in the play "Cambodian Rock Band," and Charya Burt Cambodian Dance plays the Green Show stage at OSF July 4th and 6th.
The piece to be presented honors the memory of the singer Ros Sereysothea, who died while the Khmer Rouge held power in Cambodia.
Charya Burt, now a Californian, visits the Exchange.
