The 3 Musketeers
by A. Dumas Adaptation Julia Leyris
A charity show
"A challenge for me as a director and a challenge for the actors. They even had to learn fencing with the Cambodian National Fencing Team, our experience with them was incredible and very rewarding. The young Cambodian champions took part in the show. The actors' performance included fights with intense music from the Ennio Morricone's most famous westerns themes, all while moving on a stage with three floors.
The audience could see the fights from various perspectives. My goal was to create several different worlds, and a stage constantly in action."
