Let’s Talk about See You Yesterday!
Thank you for coming to the Paramount to see Global Arts Corps and Phare Ponleu Selpak’s production, See You Yesterday.
Through research, interviews and improvisations this ensemble created this performance as a way into Cambodia’s difficult and often undiscussed history. As Global Arts Corps has learned over the years, the traumas of conflict and genocide can resonate with audiences around the world. The generosity and bravery of the artists to explore their history encourages us to explore our own. Maybe talking about our past can help us into the future.
Feel free to leave any thoughts or reflections in the comment section!
“A fascinating phenomenon…both visually stunning and emotionally cathartic.” – South Shore Critic
“The loveliest — and most arresting — vision in See You Yesterday are scenes where the performers mass their bodies in precarious piles and balances to portray caves and promontories and riverbanks, creating a landscape that enables some lucky people to hide and to escape. They become, in their very flesh, home and flight from home.” – The Arts Fuse
“I had seen the Phare Circus performance of Same Same Different in Siem Reap and was mesmerized…. Thank you for your wonderful work.”
“This group is magical, and the work they do in Cambodia is just inspirational!” – Audience Member
“Compelling storytelling through dance, music & acrobatics! Kudos to the exceptional young performers.” – Audience Member
