Do you know? What are the differences between Cambodian Royal Ballet and Thai Dance?
Female attires for Cambodian dancers are worn over one shoulder, leaving the right shoulder bare while Thai dancers wear their clothes over their heads and fasten the hems with the belts.
The attires for Cambodian dancers come only in dominant color such as gold or red, whether it is embroidery or jewels, they don’t add other colors to their clothing, but Thais like to have a bit of everything to be more colorful even they already have golden embroidery on their clothes.
Cambodians prefer women to dance all the main characters like in the Ramayana or Reamké, minor characters can be men, but it is inevitable that the important roles are best danced by the female ones, unlike the Thai dance, which allows the male dancers to perform for the main characters. I don’t know whether this is something to be understood why we have this differences, but in my opinion, there must be a norm or tradition for the Cambodian royal ballet to be only performed by females while Thai doesn’t have this as their tradition.
(improvised from Keo Chanbo post, I feel the need to add my point and spread this)

The Missing Picture (2013) - dir. Rithy Panh // Cambodia
Academy Award® nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, The Missing Picture explores filmmaker Rithy Panh’s quest to create the missing images during the period when the Khmer Rouge ruled over Cambodia between 1975 and 1979. Panh uses intricately detailed clay figurines intercut with archival footage he could find to relay what is indelibly recorded in his memory, he creates the missing pictures of what does not exist in photograph or film.
Anonymous asked: Yesterday I was watching Sabado Gigante (Giant Saturday) and there was a Cambodian man on stage who was trying to tell a long joke, but the audience got impatient after a while and the Chacal (this guy in a black robe with a trumpet) sounded off, and then a midget carried the man off-stage. That was the first time in my life that I've seen a Cambodian man on Spanish tv.
Lmao. Interesting haha. Do you know what kind of joke he was saying?
