Biography:
Experimental and spiritual, classical, complex and powerful—these are just a few of the words that describe the unique work of choreographer Sophiline Cheam Shapiro. Since 2002, Shapiro has toured the world with her Khmer Arts Ensemble, dramatically expanding the repertory of Cambodian dance. In The Lives of Giants—featuring a company of 36 dancers, instrumentalists, and singers—a blind and vengeful giant wreaks havoc in the heavens. When tricked into using his ill-gotten weapon of destruction on himself, layers of elaborate deception are stripped away and his treachery is laid bare. "A gorgeous spectacle of contradictory sensations" (New York Times).
