Nothing changes the planet more than what we eat. Three well-known doctors come together with scientists and world famous chefs to show how our food choices impact our health, and contribute to global warming, land use and oceanic deadzones.
Followed by discussion with Kumara Sidhartha, MD, and Andrea Lyonnais, Physician Assistant
Against a backdrop of colorful and delicious food grown by organic farmers and prepared in the kitchens of world-famous chefs, PLANEAT for the first time brings together the ground-breaking studies of three prominent scientists; Dr. T Colin Campbell in China by exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr.Caldwell Esselstyn's use of nutrition to treat chronically ill heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel's investigations into how our food choices contribute to global warming, wasteful land use and lifeless oceans. More recently, Dr. Campbell and Dr. Esselstyn have become known for their role in turning President Clinton onto a vegan diet.
PLANEAT, which has been selected for film festivals around the world, shown in the English Houses of Parliament and endorsed by Sir Paul McCartney, inspires you to make the right food choices. Choices that can dramatically reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer, protect our environment and make our planet sustainable while celebrating the joys of food.
Thursday march 29th 2012 was the season’s final performance of the Children of Bassac. From December to March we have staged 18 performances in the garden of the National Museum, and more than 1,000 visitors came to see this show. Positive feedback came from our visitors, but also from our partners in the tourism sector, proving to us that the Children of Bassac has come just in time to fill in a need for high-quality cultural activities in Phnom Penh. We received nearly 40 excellent or very good reviews on the renowned travel website Trip Advisor, where our enthusiastic guests made us 2nd best attraction in Phnom Penh!
We are really proud of the performers. Through this exposure they have been asked to dance at other occasions and we hope the word will be spread that this troupe can be hired for private events as well.
Now the show Children of Bassac will take a break during the rainy season to develop the troupe and prepare the next season commencing in October.
From March 26 - 29, 2012, students from the Coe College, Iowa, USA, have been invited to participate in Cambodian Living Arts’(CLA) intermediate English class in Phnom Penh, as part of its Capacity Building program. This is a chance for CLA arts students to develop their conversational skills. During the exchange, CLA students will present their art forms in English to the visiting students. This short cultural exchange was successful in 2011 and we are hoping to continue this partnership for many years to come.
