ARN CHORN-POND, MASTER MEK, & THE WATEREK ENSEMBLE
Presented in association with Season of Cambodia
David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage (Broadway bet. 62nd & 63rd St.)
The son of respected artists, traditional flute player Arn Chorn-Pond founded Cambodian Living Arts (CLA) in Phnom Penh in 1998 to resurrect the traditional arts, and their practitioners, that had been virtually wiped out under the Khmer Rouge. He survived the horrors of a work camp by playing for the authorities and while interred met, and studied with, Master Mek. Chorn-Pond's moving story was recounted in the Emmy-nominated documentary, The Flute Player and in Patricia McCormick's 2012 book Never Fall Down. A discussion with the artists will follow the performance. The evening is part of this spring's CLA organized Season of Cambodia, a citywide celebration of Cambodian arts, culture and humanities (April 6-May 31) that involves more than 30 New York arts and education institutions, presenting some 125 artists.
