See You Yesterday

May 16-19, 2019

Presented by ArtsEmerson

On the heels of the sold-out performances of last season’s Bangsokol comes our latest collaboration with Cambodian Living Arts. Artists from US-based Global Arts Corps and Cambodia’s Phare Ponleu Selpak have created this visually stunning US premiere. Nineteen Cambodian circus artists utilize their skills in physical theatre to shatter a legacy of silence. Comprised of second-generation survivors of the Khmer Rouge genocide, See You Yesterday explores the fragmented memory of recent Cambodian history, unpacking the long shadow of a genocidal regime as they attempt to forgive the past in order to survive the future.
