SEASONS OF MIGRATION
John Bishop | USA 2009 | 56 Min. | OmeU
Seasons of Migration shows Sophilene Cheam Shapiro’s four-part classical Cambodian dance of the same name and how it finds inspiration and is reflective of the real-life culture shock as experienced by Cambodian-American residents of Long Beach, California (the largest Cambodian city outside of Cambodia). It blends the dance with commentary about the music and choreography, and personal stories of emigration and culture shock. The dance uses a classical music and movement vocabulary to address contemporary themes.
