Bamboo Stage is helping to preserve and showcase the traditional art of shadow puppeteering in Cambodia. A gathering space for artists and art lovers, the centre acts as a platform for the performing arts in Siem Reap with daily shows as well as regularly-held workshops. Operating as a social enterprise, Bambu Stage is helping to ensure that the traditional art form of shadow puppetry is retained in the country via its performances.
The 2019 season sees the troupe introducing a new shadow theatre set titled Angkor Dreams, which retells the story of the dramatic events of 18th March 1970 when a new Republic was declared. Bambu Stage’s workshops are also a great way for visitors to get an introduction to this unique form of puppetry. Bamboo Street, Wat Damnak Village, Siem Reap, bambustage.com
