Traditional Masked Cambodian Hunting Dance

Post by nightmare.believer » Thu Jun 05, 2014 12:33 am

I had happened upon a masked performance being done in front of the royal palace a few years ago. It was during a holiday (I think new year's). A hunter in a mask was chasing a man in a deer mask in a ritual hunt dance. Does anyone know what these are called? Do you have any links (text or video) that would help me learn more about traditional Cambodian dances such as this one?
