Bambu Stage is a platform for performing arts in Cambodia—a performance venue with daily shows, a workshop space for Cambodian puppeteers, and a gathering space for artists and art lovers. We operate as a social enterprise and collaborate closely with NGOs, other social enterprises, and ethical businesses in the community.
We have two key priorities:
First: to change perceptions about the history, culture, and issues that affect Cambodia. When we’re more informed, we become better travelers.
Second: to nurture local talent in professional, technical, and artistic collaboration. We have worked with WORLD OCEAN ALLIANCE, PLASTIC FREE CAMBODIA and GAEA to develop ANGKOR ROO – a street theatre project that uses the concept of eco-repetition to reinforce community values.
Ultimately, our goal is to contribute to a sustainable arts sector in Cambodia.
Our 2018-19 season includes regular favorites as well as ANGKOR DREAMS, a new shadow theatre set on the dramatic night of 18th March 1970, when a new Republic was declared and the monarchy abolished.
