“In a lively and slightly bizarre family, the father is suffering, traumatized by the war. With him, the whole family is vulnerable.

The sudden arrival of a medium will change their lives. In an attempt to soothe the father, the medium orders the building of a giant house and takes them on a trip to the moon.

Tchamlaek, which means “Weird” in Khmer, is a poetic show which humorously conveys the strange adventures of a family in the pursuit of happiness.

Tchamlaek, is a Circus – Theatre show displaying high level juggling, trapeze, contortion and acrobatics.”

On May 26, 2013, Tchamlaek had the honor of being the first show performed under the big top at Phare, The Cambodian Circus. The new venue brings the audience much closer to the action, giving them a greater feeling of “being there”.

The character’s expressions are more visible and intense. The stadium sitting lets the audience see the entire stage while the tent protects everyone from the elements.

Tchamlaek will end its Siem Reap run on June 22, 2013 and the performers will tour in France.
