The performances were interesting and the costumes were beautiful, some were very intricate and detailed. We happened upon it and I'm so glad that we stopped to see it. Admission is $15/20/25, depending on where you sit and if you want cushions

Live music, colourful costumes, self-control and skills of all the artists - everything about this 1h15 show is impressive. In addition, the artists all seem to bring real joy to their performance, which makes the show very living, dynamic and joyful, in addition to formal excellence. Highly recommended!

From the wreckage of the country a beautiful Phoenix has emerged in the form of this dance company. Highly skilled, colourful and hugely energetic these handsome young Cambodians strut their stuff to show their pride in their fast-healing country. Wholly inspiring and not to be missed.
