The talented Apsara Dancers from Tlaitno Ciai Association
"I wanted to put on a more intimate show with no big stage effects, focusing on the work of the characters and the comedy.
For the actors the work was to find their comic potential, to trust in their lightness and to let them go and have fun with the audience too."
Performed in The Chinese House in Phnom Penh & Navutu resort and Dreams in Siem Reap in 2017.
