SOKRIAS (ECLIPSE)

How far would someone go to fight back against rejection and bullying to gain community acceptance?

In a rural Cambodian village, a disfigured young man is rejected and ridiculed. He wonders why he is cursed and seeks help from the gods. They answer his prayers by transforming him into a beautiful woman with magical powers. Using this new form, he attracts the attention and desire of the village men. But the villagers quickly discover there’s something sinister about the newcomer in their midst.

Community Acceptance

Based on traditional Cambodian folktales handed down through generations, Eclipse is a story of rejection, revenge, spirit possession and eventual forgiveness and community acceptance. The story is set to original music and told through a dramatic mix of theater, traditional dance and modern circus arts.
