“Nothing short of an astounding and moving experience for the viewer”
About the show
Set in the Iconic surroundings of The Old Royal Cinema in Kampot, Come Back Brighter is the first show of its kind in Kampot, which is fast becoming an artistic hub of Cambodia. The hour-long show features contemporary and traditional performances from Epic Encounters and KCDI. Come Back Brighter celebrates Cambodia’s arts scene and narrates the country’s journey from the swinging sixties to the present day through the use of physical theatre, video and movement.
In early 2016 we put on ‘Come Back Brighter’ every Friday for 4 months the show received rave reviews from tourists, locals and Cambodian press. Due to the success of Come Back Brighter in 2016 the show will run for a second year in early 2017. Watch this space for more information!
Come Back Brighter was created by emerging Khmer Choreographer, Nim Narim.
Epic Encounters are an Inclusive Contemporary Dance Company, a team of talented Cambodian dancers some of whom happen to have a disability.
Come Back Brighter was initially funded by Arts Council England to tour the UK in 2014/2015 before returning for an 11 week run in the dancers hometown of Kampot in 2016.
