The Show 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.


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.


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.
