Performance Series

Performance Series: Artists in Residence

Creative Generation presents a curated performance series featuring emerging and mid-career Cambodian artists from a cross-section of performing arts. Five artists are invited to take up residence at the black box theater provided by our sponsor venue Java Creative Café Toul Tom Poung.

We are very happy to present the following artists and partners for our performance series:
SOK Samithi with Phnom Penh Players
Jean-Baptiste PHOU with SAO Sreymao + PPP
KHUON Chay with Prumsodun OK + NATYRASA
CHANG Shanghai
SAO Sreymao

Each artist invited to participate in the Performance Series is provided a small financial grant to seed a new project that will lead to a live performance. They are free to use the money any way they want. Because we know that artistic labor can happen in many different ways, and it is valuable.

They are also given free access to the black box theater provided by the sponsor venue Java Creative Café TTP at no cost. And 100% of the ticket sales are retained by the artist.

It “takes a village” to support a theater, so many of the artists receive additional support and sometimes creative collaboration with other artists and community organizations. We are grateful for our supportive community like Phnom Penh Players, Photo Phnom Penh and Prumsodun OK + Natyrasa!

We are very proud to be part of this incredibly important art ecosystem and lead creative programs like the Performance Series. It has been made possible thanks to the generous support of our donors Debra Fram + Eric Schwartz.
