Shadows Tale

Rene has always wanted to see a traditional Khmer shadow puppet show. There is a Khmer cultural performance center in Phnom Penh that we have been trying to visit for over a year now. Rene's wish came true a week ago.
They combined masks, costumes, mine, acting, shadow puppets and a narative to tell a story.The story was a section of a lager work called the Reamker Chronicle.I was glad they handed out a program that explained the story in English.It was very interesting but would have been easier to follow if I could understand Khmer.
