Operational Update:


Due to recent community COVID transmission in Phnom Penh, the Cambodian government has ordered schools and entertainment venues closed until further notice. We hope to resume performances on 18 Dec, but it will depend on the conditions in Cambodia and approval from the government. We hope everyone is safe, healthy and taking the recommended precautions to prevent COVID transmission.



Through a series of everyday situations, “Same Same But Different” explores the different habits and ways of living 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.
