“One evening in a grungy Phnom Penh bar, owner Bang Son and his brother Chhaya reign over the bar’s regulars, watching as they look for adventure, passion and love in all the wrong places. A man is seduced away from his girlfriend by an alluring stranger. A waiter gets caught in an unexpected romance. A customer’s iPad is stolen and sold back to him. A mix of humour, drama, heart pounding live rock music and breathtaking acrobatics circus acts ‘Khmer Metal’ turns social convention on its head and gives the audience a glimpse of the wilder side of urban Cambodia.

The storyline, music and acts of ‘Khmer Metal’ were created in a unique collaborative process between international choreographers and Cambodian performers. The show presents a realistic, gritty, yet still upbeat view of present-day Cambodian life and the cast features nine Cambodian artists–six acrobats and three musicians. It is an opportunity for American audiences to see something completely different, a truly spectacular, rousing, energising, and sometimes surprising performance by a group of highly trained, talented artists.”
