Amansara

The sacred dancers of Angkor

Recruited from the villages surrounding Siem Reap, the Sacred Dancers of Angkor bring Khmer legends to life through music, movement and meditation.

The bas-relief Apsaras carved into the temple walls of Angkor depict the 44 female spirits of Sanskrit mythology – the apsaras, spirits of clouds and water – and have entranced and intrigued visitors for centuries. Today, a remarkable troupe of performers is telling the stories hidden in the stones through mesmerising dances, rich in symbolism and profoundly moving to witness.
