Book: Contemporary Performance Arts in Laos

Title:  Contemporary Performance Arts in Laos ສິລະປະການສະແດງໃນຍຸກປັດຈຸບັນຢູ່ສປປລາວ
By:  Hélène Ouvrard
Publisher, Year:  Pad Tad Ke Botanical Garden, 2016



There are not a lot of books about the performing arts in Laos. In fact, this is probably only the second book written exclusively on this topic that I've personally come across. This is written bilingually, in Lao and English. It covers the old Luangprabang dancers to modern Lao hip hop.
