Online Stream: "See You Yesterday"

Nineteen Cambodian performers utilize their extraordinary physical skills, including acrobatics and circus arts, to travel back in time and shatter a legacy of silence. Performed by second-generation survivors of the Khmer Rouge genocide, See You Yesterday explores the fragmented narratives these young artists have inherited from their parents and grandparents. Since 2012, Global Arts Corps — whose celebrated work brings together people from opposite sides of violent conflicts — have collaborated with these young Cambodian artists as they grappled with the painful history of their country’s genocide. While details of the four-year horror have largely gone unexplored by younger generations of Cambodians, the cast of See You Yesterday interviewed their elders (and even a former Khmer Rouge child soldier) to build a stunning performance that is both beautiful and cathartic. The final result, See You Yesterday, is a visually striking theatre experience and its Boston engagement marks the show’s U.S premiere. Face the past, see you yesterday.
