About me

Prumsodun Ok is a bridge-building choreographer, director, writer, and teacher committed to the positive transformation of our world. His interdisciplinary performances contemplate the “avant-garde in antiquity,” and have been presented in Cambodia, Thailand, Mexico, Greece, and the United States. His 2013 book Moni Mekhala and Ream Eyso was reviewed in the Asian Theatre Journal as “a sampeah kru ritual of a sort: an offering to teachers living and deceased and to Moni Mekhala [the Goddess of the Ocean] herself.” He is a TED Senior Fellow, and the recipient of grants and fellowships from MAP Fund and Surdna Foundation among others. Ok has been a speaker at TED, Directors Lab West, UCLA, California Institute of the Arts, and Rajabhat University. He has participated in strategizing roundtables and advisory committees for the National Endowment for the Arts, Arts for LA, and was formerly on the advisory board of the Los Angeles County Arts Commission’s Cultural Equity and Inclusion Initiative. Ok served as associate artistic director of Khmer Arts and was a member of the Alliance for California Traditional Arts’s Board of Directors. He is the founding artistic director of Prumsodun Ok and NATYARASA, Cambodia's first gay dance company. "A classically trained artist who refuses to dismantle his tradition even as he challenges its constraints, Ok invokes contemporary political inquiry while retaining the elegant gestural language of Khmer dance." - REDCAT, Los Angeles "Prumsodun Ok has pushed the boundaries of classical Cambodian dance, embodying 'empowered sexuality'. . ." - Java Arts, Phnom Penh "Belleza refrescante." - La Jornada, Mexico City
