Cultural Season Tour 2020

What is the theme for 2020 Cultural Season?

The world is changing and so is Cambodia. With these changes and development (globalization, immigration…etc.), some view this as a threat to “Cambodian Identity/Pure Culture”. With this current context, what do we mean by “Cambodian Identity, i.e. to remain the same or to extend the definition to respond to changes with time and space and who has a right to (re)define it? With 90% of Cambodia’s population being Khmer Ethnicity as majority, so how are different minorities (including indigenous people, Vietnamese, Cham, Chinese and Lao) integrated? Does the emergence of the diverse expressions (contemporary arts form, visibility of LGBT…etc.) necessarily mean an opposition to dominant culture? How are they represented and from which point of view? Can all these different groups be together as “us” or should be separate from each other as “them”?”
