An assemblage of kinetically realized stories and memories—played out in stunning acrobatics, tumbling, balance, and juggling—See You Yesterday physically embodies the emotional and intellectual risks required to address a previously unspeakable past.

Nineteen young Cambodian circus performers, second-generation survivors of the Khmer Rouge, explode a legacy of silence using their world-class circus skills to imagine the stories told to them by their elders. This artist-driven project has been created in Cambodia by the cast and Global Arts Corps’ team of international art makers from post-conflict nations.

This World Premiere of See You Yesterday at the Ubumuntu Arts Festival has been made possible through the generous support of the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
