Still from projections of the development showing at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre.A ten day re-development for me to dramaturg the visuals of this pop-music theatre show with Cambodian Space Project, directed by Carlos Gomez.  Huge fun, spontaneous improvisation, a lot of sampling, remixing and compositing images from the internet as well as some fast reviewing of Cambodian History.  60's rock culture dominates in the visionary manager, Kampot based Julien Poulson's world.  It is a revival of optimism, created by the mixed contemporary interests of the band, and led by the incredible voice of Kak Channthy.
Showing at: Riverside Theatre and Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent, Sydney Festival 2016/World Theatre Festival Brisbane 25 Feb 2016
