Itinerary

Sokrias (Eclipse)
Steeped in Cambodian culture and popular beliefs, Eclipse is a tale of discrimination. A young man, who suffers from rejection because of his difference, prays for divine intervention. The gods transform him into a very attractive woman who suddenly receives a lot of positive attention until a mysterious plague begins to consume all the villagers.

Khmer Metal

An edgy, progressive and modern tale about urban life. In a funky Phnom Penh rock bar, the well-connected owner, small dealer and occasional fraudster, is used to getting into trouble with his ‘brother,’ the nominal bar security guard. Don't be surprised to feel reverberations in your chest as Phare musicians pound on drums.

Sokha
The story of the eponymous war child who is haunted by visions of the Cambodian Civil War and the destruction after the Khmer Rouge regime.This is the story of Sokha’s journey where memories take on a surreal twist into myths and facts. The performance uses different art forms such as circus, visual art, traditional Khmer music and dance.

Preu (Chills)
A bold performance that taps into the fears and anxieties of human beings. The show focuses on supernatural events in a classroom, where students face their fears in order to overcome them.

Putho
The show title translates to ‘Oh My God!’ in Khmer, and this allegory highlights the relationship between boys and girls in Cambodia today. Acrobatic, juggling, balancing, tightrope walking and contortion techniques are accompanied by exquisite live music using both traditional and modern instruments. Its extravagant characters offer an artistic vision of their society’s evolution through an explosion of virtuosity and humor.

Same Same but Different
Through a series of everyday situations, “Same Same But Different” explores the different habits and ways of living between Cambodians and foreign visitors. A sudden downpour, an unexpected power outage, a hectic boat trip and a relaxing dinner all provide the backdrops for funny encounters and opposing perspectives. But in every situation they find understanding and connect at a human level.

This is an extremely high energy circus show performed by 7 persons, 1 woman and 6 men. Interesting story great acrobatics and very enjoyable. The circus tent is small seating approx. 300 people. Most seats are good. Side seats in the c section, the most economical are good but get there early to get them or you will be seated extreme side and not such a good seat. Music done by musicians is upbeat. The show has dancing, acrobatics and not your ordinary circus. No animals, extreme energy by 7 individuals that perform in the heat no a/c you get a hand fan to use great way to appreciate the show. You are warm but the performers are bathing in sweat. It was a great show but maybe not good for kids. When we saw it, audience was full and 95 adults. Definitely is a good choice for night of entertainment and certainly beats the ansara dancers.
