See You Yesterday

An assemblage of kinetically realized stories and memories—played out in stunning acrobatics, tumbling, balance, and juggling—See You Yesterday physically embodies the emotional and intellectual risks required to address a previously unspeakable past.

Nineteen young Cambodian circus performers, second-generation survivors of the Khmer Rouge, explode a legacy of silence using their world-class circus skills to imagine the stories told to them by their elders. This artist-driven project has been created in Cambodia by the cast and Global Arts Corps’ team of international art makers from post-conflict nations.

This World Premiere of See You Yesterday at the Ubumuntu Arts Festival has been made possible through the generous support of the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
