  Episodes from the Reamker epic (Cambodia’s version of the Ramayana) are played out by dancer-puppeteers who manipulate large, two-dimensional hand-cut leather puppets The performers, trained in Lakhaon Kaol (a classical male masked dance form), maneuver the puppets from behind and in front of a large screen, and are accompanied by a Pin Peat orchestra. Two narrators (one speaking in the host language) chronicle and comment on the action. This production will feature master Cambodian puppeteers in collaboration with Singaporean director Ong Keng Sen of TheatreWorks Singapore.
