Summary
The Palace Dancers of Cambodia, once one of the finest Asian troupes in the world, perform two dances from the classical repertoire: "Indra's Garden and the Queen of the Apsaras", and "Mekhala and the Diamond." There is an demonstration of styles and commentary on training methods and Faubion Bowers, Asian arts expert, talks with an 18 year old star-dancer. She demonstrates bending the wrist backwards, hyperflexing the elbow, and balancing on one foot. This film was made before the political upheavals in Cambodia virtually destroyed that country. The Palace Dancers were all either driven into exile or killed. 1971
