Vichet Chum stopped in the Angkor Dance Troupe studio on November 19, 2017 to meet Tim Thou and students right before he began his residency with the Merrimack Repertory Theater for his one-man play, "KNYUM". Check out his Instagram posts:
"What an absolute honor to meet Tom [Tim] Chan Thou, founder & master teacher of the Angkor Dance Troupe in Lowell. He’s spent his life preserving the music and dance of the Cambodian people in the US. I’m humbled to be in his presence." - https://www.instagram.com/p/Bbr6exfFfpy/
"My heart is open wide. The young people of @angkordance remind me of when I️ was young - looking for an outlet & trying desperately to find a way to connect to this culture that confused me but pervaded every inch of my life. It is breathtaking to see this work being passed on to a younger generation." - https://www.instagram.com/p/BbsR0SClVmQ/
