WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Cambodia Agonistes, a musical with book and lyrics by Ernest Abuba and music by Louis Stewart, focuses on the civil war years of Cambodia under the rule of the Khmer Rouge and the genocide of the 70's. Through traditional Cambodian dance, puppetry and an original score of 20 musical numbers, Cambodia Agonistes tells the story of a traditional Cambodian dancer, suffering psychosomatic blindness who is found wandering the streets of New York. In her attempt to overcome her personal horrors and her homeland's history she must make an enormous sacrifice. Tisa Chang returns to direct and this new staging of one of Pan Asian Rep's most successful productions.
