Free entrance

Join us for a Director’s Talk with Sok Samithi and Marika Els, co-directors of 12-8, the smashing debut of writer/director Samithi!

Samithi was invited to receive a small grant from the Creative Generation Performance Series to produce his play. He very quickly pulled together a sharp team of producers from Phnom Penh Players which is how he met Marika. They hit it off and decided to work together as collaborators.

Both Samithi and Marika will talk about their personal artistic journeys and their collaboration together on 12-8, their approach to making theater, its challenges and triumphs. The audience will be invited to ask questions during the Q&A that follows.
