At the bus station waiting to travel to Phnom Penh, the boy already has a taste of the dark streets he is heading to when he is robbed and beaten by a gang of thugs.
Once in Phnom Penh, he drowns himself in the excesses of nightlife and gradually ends up in dire straights. Roaming about, he is saved by a chance meeting with a band of smart street urchins, who take him in as one of their gang, building his confidence and helping him to hold his head high. Bolstered by his adventures, he returns to his family home, strong enough to confront his elders.
The Adventure is a modern Cambodian tale mixing high level theatre, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling and contortion, to carry you on an emotional and exciting journey through today’s Cambodia.”
The show toured in Germany and is now showing in the evening at Phare, The Cambodian Circus in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
