TCHAMLAEK
(WEIRD)

In a lively and slightly weird family, the father is suffering, traumatized by the war. With him, the whole family is vulnerable. The sudden arrival of a medium will change their lives. In an attempt to soothe the father, the medium orders the building of a giant house and takes them on a trip to the moon.

Tchamlaek, which means “weird” in Khmer, is a poetic show which humorously conveys the strange adventures of a family in the pursuit of happiness.

Tchamlaek, is a Circus – Theatre show displaying high level juggling, trapeze, contortion and acrobatics.
