Performing Arts Festival

A free show at the Chenla Theater, Phnom Penh


This was quite spectacular! Dancers from france, Cambodia and Laos put on perhaps one of the best dance performances i have seen. Im not a theater goer and certainly don't know much about classical dance but I will try and explain. The first performance looked kind of classical khmer combined with intense drumming, the dancers were truly amazing at what they did. Then the second performance, try to imagine synchronized break dancing to classical music, truly exceptional stuff. To finish, some street kids came on stage and continued with some quite acrobatic breaking, all this for free!


This was the first show of it's kind, there are further shows planned, the next being in June. For a taster of the action there will be 8 acts on diamond island this evening.
