  Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia is a multi-disciplinary stage production combining music, film, movement and voice. Him Sophy’s composition embraces musical traditions from both Cambodia and the West, while Rithy Panh’s poetic visuals tell the story of Cambodia’s tragedy. Bangsokol hopes to serve as an inspiration for post-conflict societies around the world – to rebuild, transmit and innovate through arts. It offers a space for healing for those who have suffered violent conflict and forced migration, and honours those who have passed away. With a cast of performers from the emerging to the iconic, Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia is an essential act of memory, reconciliation and peace.
