Global Arts Corps Presents World Preview of "See You Yesterday"
Monday, March 7, 2016
Today we are highlighting See You Yesterday (formerly known as REBOUND), one of our latest pitch projects introduced to delegates at the New York 2016 ISPA Congress. The work is an original fusion of circus and theater which explores Cambodia’s past. Starring 19 young Cambodian circus performers, and second-generation survivors of the Khmer Rouge, See You Yesterday is an assemblage of stories and memories brought to life through movement, including acrobatics, tumbling, balance, and juggling.
We are delighted to share that Global Arts Corps has announced two upcoming world preview performances of See You Yesterday in Phnom Penh, March 11th and 12th! Not in the area? You can preview the performance in the video below and continue to follow the production’s development on the Global Arts Corps blog. As they shared last week:
“In preparation for these two performances, Global Arts Corps’ team is currently in the midst of the final 10 days of rehearsals with the young Cambodian cast. An award-winning composer and lighting designer, both from New York, have joined us in Phnom Penh and we are all working along with a local costume designer to add final production elements to the piece.
These two preview performances bring Global Arts Corps together in close collaboration with several of the most significant Cambodian arts organizations – Cambodian Living Arts, Amrita Performing Arts, Phare Ponleu Selpak Association, and Phare Performing Social Enterprise – and will allow our cast to perform before an international audience deeply invested in the subject matter of the production they have created."
With a proven track record for success, ISPA’s Pitch New Works program continues to assist works in development with securing touring dates, regional agents, co-commissions, premieres, and more.
