ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage Presents: Swimming to CambodiaActor and raconteur Spalding Gray delivers his acclaimed monologue Swimming to Cambodia for the camera. Slipping in history and socio-political context of the political turmoil Cambodia was experiencing at the time, Gray recounts his experience as an extra on the Sam Waterston film The Killing Fields filmed on location. A modern master of language and story, Gray's riveting tale speaks to the power of storytelling and importance of using the arts--theatre in particular--to bring about social awareness.
