This evening we journey to the perimeter of the city to visit Theam’s gallery. Theam is one of Cambodia’s most famous and revered artists. Here you will feel like a guest in a private home, as the story of Theam’s life and passions unfold. Visit the vibrent galleries and real art spaces and interact with the talent on a Khmer art walk. Be sure to visit their shop which is stacked full of one of a kind gifts. Theam’s gallery will be the location of your private dinner and entertainment this evening.
Prior to dinner you will have a private showing of Angkor’s Temples De-coded, a one-hour interactive show that helps you use your personal, religious and financial powers to build an impressive monument to your reign. You need to cement alliances, raise taxes, hire a good architect and choose a site. And don’t forget the budget for the opening party. Using a large interactive model, live sketching and video projections, the team helps you plan your kingdom.
During your dinner you will be amazed by the talents of the acrobats from the famous Phare Circus who work mainly with disadvantaged young people. They learn circus skills, theatre performance, music and a range of visual arts. It combines local traditions with new creative and innovative genres.
Daring athleticism is combined with stories that speak powerfully to Cambodia’s not-too-distant history; for example, escape from tyranny is depicted through tightrope walking. The dark subject of a young girl trying to deal with memories of atrocities, is depicted by breathtaking acrobatics in which seemingly impossible goals are achieved. More than simply a circus, Phare is an amazing blend of traditional and modern theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling and contortion beautifully choreographed and performed in a story about Cambodian lives and society.
