New shadow puppets in action for the first time at Sovanna Phum
I hardly took out my camera last month. I needed the break, and my other work takes priority. But a few days ago, I stopped by Sovanna Phum and learned they had a special event that evening–a ceremony and special performance to launch their new set of shadow puppets. The event was attended by many of the regular artists plus people from the community, a couple of donors or their representatives, and others who straggled in like myself.

I’m interested in the families of performers. This boy’s father and mother are traditional arts performers. He is studying to become a drummer and his younger sister is studying dance.
