Production I < ALL PRODUCTIONS
Through a series of everyday situations, “Same Same But Different” explores cultural differences and habits between Cambodians and foreign visitors. A sudden downpour, an unexpected power outage, a hectic boat trip and a relaxing dinner all provide the backdrops for funny encounters and opposing perspectives. But in every situation they find understanding and connect at a human level.
Phare artists share their own unique take on cultural differences, poking good-natured fun at themselves and others.
