The odyssey of a millenary art, the symbol of a restored identity.
From 1906 to the present day, from Auguste Rodin’s sketches to the creation

of a new show for a French tour, from the glory hours to the darkest days, Cambodia’s Royal Ballet has survived and upheld its unique body language.The film follows the creation of a show called “Metamorphosis” and the history of the Royal Ballet since 1906, when Rodin tried to capture through his drawings the essence of this art he had just discovered. The conception and preparation of the new show, as well as the performances across France lead to a journey of discovery of the Ballet’s incredible odyssey. Alternating between past and present, we see the ballet’s movements and postures take us to a world of mystery and splendor, gradually becoming the key to reconstructing national identity and a source of fascination for international audiences.
