Home/Bassac Giant [24]

Lakhon Bassac is known as one of the most popular folk theatre in Cambodia before. However, nowadays, this famous art form seems going to eliminate soon. We rarely see any performance of this Khmer art in any ceremonies of Cambodian people for sure. To protect and promote the art form of Lakhon Bassac Khmer, my team created a series photo of Lakhon Bassac Giant by travelling with general strange activities in public road around Ta Kmao and Phnom Penh city. Our purpose is to keep and promote this very old kind Khmer art form for our next generation to learn and know about our culture. We want to deliver the message to everyone to keep their eyes on Bassac Giant and remind them that we still have a great form of Khmer art; we won’t give up on this theatre and the new generation can know this theatre too.
